I thought it would be easy to get a staging server working. I’m using
capistrano 2 and the ext gem. I already had everything working with
capistrano for a production deployment…
I added this to my deploy.rb
I created a /deploy/staging.rb
set :deploy_to, “/where-the-staging-stuff-goes”
set :rails_env, ‘staging’
I added a “:staging” section in my database.yml file which is the same
as production section but points to a different database
Most of this is working. The deployment works and I can run the app at
the new location, but for some reason it continues to use the production
database rather than the staging one that I have pointed it to with the
staging section of my database.yml file.
thanks for any words of wisdom on this.
