I get the error that my assigned user isn't allowed to execute script/
spin. I checked in my current/ directory and there is no script/spin

i hate to say it, but if you read the manual you'll stumble over the
following lines:

By default, when Capistrano needs to start your application layer, it
will try to execute a script called “spin”, in the “script” directory
of your application, on each remote server. We’ll need to write that
script, and then check it into the source repository.

The page you mentioned looks very much updated now. A while ago the
script was not well documented here.
If you use subversion, don't forget to add the svn:executable property
the spin script. (Why not do that with all the files in the script

Oh, so I have to create the spin script myself?
