Deploying multiple applications on Nginx/Mysql stack without subdomains

Hi Everybody!

I need some help with a RoR Server I am setting up…

I need to run multiple rails applications on one server, each app with
it’s own domain (www.app1.org, www.app2.org etc)… I think Nginx is
more suitable for this than apache, so I’m trying to figure out what
to do (I always deployed on apache machines). I’m going to use
capistrano/deprec for the stack installation and application
deployment, but I don’t think there is any ‘standard’ recipe that fits
my situation, so was thinking to use the custom recipes found at
http://wiki.slicehost.com/doku.php?id=capistrano_recipe_and_howto_for_rails_mongrel_and_nginx
(i’m not on slicehost but should work anyway) and change them
according to my needs… My idea was to write an add_application task
to deploy the app, but customizing the configure_nginx so that if the
nginx.conf file is already on the server (created by another
application) it just adds a virtual host to the file insteas of
overwriting it…

Is this a viable solution or is there an easier/better way to do this?

Any feedback would be appreciated…
Filippo

(Thanks to jonmagic for the recipes… As a beginner I found them very
useful.)
