Has one set up Radiant on Dreamhost?

Hello everyone. I’m a Rails newbie. I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve
actually was able to setup Radiant on TextDrive actually with no
problem. I
need to set it up on Dreamhost. Does anyone have an detailed
documentation
on how to set it up on Dreamhost?

Thanks!

I have setup on DH. Please visit wiki.dreamhost.com for details on how
to deploy a rails app.

I got things working and I don’t think I did any of the things on the
wiki page. One thing that I figured out was that the line

host: path.to.mysqldatabase.com

had to be added to database.yml for each database to make it work.

Other than that I think it was a pretty normal installation, following
the docs on Radiantcms.org and the install text file.

I got a Radiant site at Dreamhost as well. I don’t think I did
anything special either… the most important point is to not forget
to set public as the root of your site in the Dreamhost panel.

I still get a lot of the dreaded ‘application errors’ but that
happens with all my Rails sites at Dreamhost… very annoying, but
nothing to do with Radiant I think.

Here’s an ugly hack that seems to solve the problem:

Finally got it working. It was a database issue.

Yes! I’m not sure how, but it is possible. I just wish I could do it
again so I could get it running on a couple production sites. What sort
of errors are you getting?
