Help me deploy a simple site


#1

Hi,

I have a ROR site that I want to deploy. Its beyond me. Would there be
any kind soul on this community that would deploy it for me? Its a
very very simple application and 2 mins work for someone who knows
what he/she is doing.

Thanks in return and future paid collaborations likely for this
person.

Please email removed_email_address@domain.invalid

Thanks

What is it that you’re having problems with? Given the breadth of
hosting
service offerings available, it’s very unlikely that ‘it’s beyond you.’
It’s simply a matter of understanding what you know and don’t know, and
picking a service that’s a good match for your current skill / knowledge
level. There are lots of folks here who can help you choose, and can
help
you learn the things you don’t already know but want to know.

A bit of friendly advice… Estimating the effort level for work
someone
else will do is a pretty big taboo in the Agile community. Speaking
only
for myself, I find that people, especially people who’ve never done a
thing
before, always underestimate the amount of effort required for someone
else
to do it. I’ve been guilty of it myself in the past.

Best regards,
Bill

to do it. I’ve been guilty of it myself in the past
I totaly agree.

Also it isnt relevant in any manner,

If one can do a certain work within 2 minutes maybe it took hims
months/weeks to get there, time another one isnt able/wiling to spend

So in change this 2 minutes are as expensive/valuable as a few months of
study in the worst case, but given a salary of 60/hr and divinding it by
60 multipliying with 2 isnt the way you will get the rate for any work
of this length, even if its doubteble that anything can be done within 2
minutes.

Just to answer this post took me more, and to get in contact for the
person willing to help ya, itll impossible to hold only communication
with you under 1 hr, my wild guess…

PS: get an ISP that will do the setup for you…if rails isnt
preinstalled

As a newbie (one HS C++ course 7 years ago) I can tell you that you
won’t have any trouble building the app yourself. I don’t know how
many free hours each day you have, but if you buy the agile book (I
started on it 4 days ago) you will probably be able to build the app
you want (if it’s really as simply as you think it is) in literally a
week. You may not understand everything, what’s doing what, but you
will probably be able to find your way through it. Then when you get
stuck, come on these boards. You’ll probably have better luck this
way, rather than trying to find someone to give up $65-100Hr. in
exchange for your laziness. :slight_smile:

And why don’t you describe what you want the app to do?

I was in the same boat until I found this article:

http://www.hostingrails.com/forums/wiki_thread/1

I use hostingrails.com and some of this might be specific to them, but
it still clarifies the steps needed to manually deploy.
