My hosting provider is Dreamhost, and for some reason can’t figure out
something that should not be that hard to do. Being a linux newbie
isn’t helping me much either
On Dreamhost, each domain gets its own subdirectory. To setup my web
app for each domain, I just go to the parent directory of that domain in
a telnet session, and type “rails mydomain.com”, and it all works out.
Now, I want to add another web app, but I don’t have the new domain
transferred yet (and I won’t for a while). I want to be able to access
the app through a browser while I’m developing/testing/showing to the
What’s the right way to setup a new, 2nd rails app on an existing
domain, and yet keep it separate from the app that already is there?
It’s perfectly ok if I need to do something like
mydomain.com/anotherapp/ to see it in a browser.
Eventually when we go “live” we’ll change over the DNS entries, and at
that point I can put the 2nd app in its own directory.
Any other Dreamhosters tried this before?
And any gotchas about the routes.rb I should know about, etc.?
Thanks a lot!
