Migrating rails website from one server to another


#1

Hello,
I have rails website running on one windows server. How can i migrate
the website from one server to another ensuring gems and plugins are
also migrated. both the servers run windoes 2003 and the database is
mssql 2000.
Thank you.

plugins are all inside your rails-project’s directory. so moving that
would move your plugins with it. and to make sure you got all the gems
just list them (“gem list”) and reinstall the same version on your new
machine.

forgot to state the (even more) obvious: dump your mysql-db to a file
and insert it in your new db.
