Switchtower not updating code


#1

When I deploy using switchtower the code does not update at all. It
does however copy the old release into its timestamped directory under
/releases/, but nothing in /currect/… is updated.

Any help at all would be much appreciated!

Do you get a new release under the release directory?
Does the current point to that new release?
Is the issue that the new release directory contains the same stuff as
the old release directory?

When it run rake deploy, I do get a new release the release directory
and it also creates a shortcut inside the current to that… the Issue
is that thats all it does… it never updates the source with the most
current source in svn repository.

current should be a symlink into the releases directory.

If there is a current directory there now, it’s probably failing.

If there the user that you’re deploying with doesn’t have permissions
on the deployment directory, then it could be failing for that reason.
