I have a VPS account with rimuhosting.com for $29/month and you get
root access to you own linux distro so you can install whatever you
want. You also get 4Gigs disk space. I have written detailed
instructions on how to set up a very nice Rails/Lighttpd/Debian VPS
server from scratch. Of course there are plenty of other good VPS
providers out there and these docs will work with any VPS or
dedicated server. But if you do go looking for one then make sure
they run Xen as their virtualization software. It is orders of
magnitude faster and better disk IO performance than the other
virtualization software out there . Having a VPS is so much better
than using a shared host for rais projects because no one else can
stomp all over the server and bring it down all the time. My VPS has
an uptime of 6 months which is when I first got it. There hasn’t ever
been any downtime yet.
I have a few articles about this on my blog as well as some details
set up documentation. Check it out and feel free to get back to me
with any questions or if you need a little help.
