Help: production vs qa env

I was wondering what the best practice is for determining whether you’re
rails app is on a qa server or on the production server.

Here’s the scenario:

I have some google analytics scripts that I want to be activated only
for
the production server. I have a QA server which I run in production
mode
for testing purposes so I can’t use the RAILS_ENV as the test. I was
thinking of just setting another ENV variable, but don’t know if that’s
the
best way… Is there a better way?

thanks,
a

Well if the hostnames are different you can just do something like:

hostname = hostname

if hostname == “<prod_machine>”

elsif hostname == “<qa_machine>”

end

Are your tests all coming from localhost? If so, you can test for
that using @controller.local_request?.
