Deploy with SSH and Apple?


#1

I wanted to deploy my first app on Dreamhost, but I have no clue as how
to proceed:
on http://www.railshosting.org/#dreamhost

I found :
"Login to your FTP/SSH domain (ours was slauson.dreamhost.com) via your
favorite SSH program (we use SSH Secure Shell, but openSSH is free if
you’re looking for one) and get to the command line to generate your
rails app (note: if your user does not have SSH enabled you can do so by
going to the users -> manage users -> edit window).

cd www.domain.com
rails your_app_name "

Is there an easy way to get through this FTP/SSH stuff without becoming
a UNIX geek ?

Can someone refer to a tutorial for dummies… ?

Maybe you want to rethink running this on dreamhost, if you’re scared
of a command line. Your mac has one too, if you’d like to get familiar
with
it locally :slight_smile:

Just curious but how are you going to ever get comfortable with Rails if
you
never use the command line? rake test, script/console… Seriously,
you’re
gonna miss out on a lot of awesome tools if you don’t get over the fear
of
the command line. I hope you take this as encouragement to learn [at
least a
little] about the command line environment. That’s how I meant it.
