Multiple rails applications under one domain

I have recently bought rails hosting and installed my first rails app,
brilliant framework!

I have another application in the pipeline as well as a number of legacy
PHP applications which I wish to move to the same host - in the long run
I would transfer the old domain across but not until I have the legacy
code up and running.

The problem is this - how do I add old PHP code, and perhaps a second
rails application, within another rails app?

At present I am hosted on primehosting.co.uk and my domain points to a
www folder (a link to my rails apps public folder). I added another
link inside my apps public folder that linked ot the public folder of my
second rails app but of course all of the requests are still processed
by the 1st rails app.

Any ideas or help is VERY welcome!

Thanks in advance.

Jim, if you have other rail app, you can add a subdomain
rails2app.example.com. That would create ‘rails2app’ folder in your
public_html. Delete this folder and create symlink to your 2nd rails app
instead.

something like
ln -s ~/apps/rails2app/current/public/ ~/public_html/rails2app

hope these helps,
Bojan

Hi Bojan,

Thanks for reply.

Problem is my ~/public_html is already a symlink direct to my current
apps public folder. I have been trying to create a real public_html
folder with symlinks to my two apps, I would need default requests to go
to appOne, and requests to a specific subfolder to go to appTwo. Have
tried working it out from some example but have got nowhere.

Anything you think might be useful would be good to read!

Thanks

I think it shouldn’t be problem if public_html is already a symlink, I
have similiar configuration. These is how it directories looks in my
case (typo is main website and dev is subdomain):

ls -l
public_html -> /home/sossi/apps/typo/public
ls -l public_html
dev -> /home/sossi/apps/mojgost/current/public/

best,
Bojan
