Hey all -
Well, I’ve gone through all of the tutorials I can get my hands on, and
I’ve developed what is basically a (very) simple front-end to a database
that I maintain online.
My big problem now is deployment. Almost everything that I’ve found on
the web regarding deployment (and this includes the instructions for
Switchtower/Ccapistrano) assumes that I have complete control over the
Apache server that I’m deploying on. This isn’t the case - I have a
hosting plan with IXWebhosting.com. According to what I first read
about RoR, I can deploy it on any server with CGI (or FastCGI - the
server I’m on is Apache 1.3 with both modules). But I’m at a complete
loss as to how to deploy it, or even how to check and make sure that
my server will support the execution of Ruby code.
How do you deploy on shared hosting? I don’t have the faintest idea
where to even start.
