Capistrano - how to deploy to QA site *or* production site?

I have been tentatively playing with Capistrano, but I like to develop
on a laptop on the move, then I have a test site on the live machine
which I use for pre-testing to ensure that the environment is all ok
with the new changes and then finally I deploy to the final production
site (actually I have three similar sites which use the same code base
so I want to choose which of them to deploy to)

How do I achieve the above with Capistrano?

Cheers

Hi Ed,

afaik there is no built-in notion of staging or Q/A in capistrano. It’s
quite easy to achieve this though, have a look over there for examples:

if you have more questions, you’ll get more accurate answers if you send
your questions to http://groups.google.com/group/capistrano

cheers!
