Bah humbug I'm trying to deploy my very first rails app and man if i said i didn't understand a damn thing it would be a understatement. I found development to be a breeze but now I'm totally stuck. I have a Media temple (dv)and got ruby installed following their step by step guide at http://kb.mediatemple.net/article.php?id=279 (it is a mongrel_cluster)and got their test App up and running. Now the problem is that i have no idea how to deploy my own stuff to this freakin server. The book i have been using is Rails Solutions By: friends of Ed and they talk about using Capistrano and subversion to deploy to text drive. And thats the first part where i got stuck. i found a post on the web on installing subversion on media temple (http://blog.hellm.com/category/subversion/)but after that i was lost because my book shows setting up subversion accounts via textdrives nice little online interface blah! Basically I'm wondering if any of you guys has deployed to a ruby server at media temple dv and what where your steps. I'm so freaking lost and i really really need some help so please anything will be very appreciated.

Rubyology's podcast # 5 ( http://rubyology.com/podcasts/show/11 ) may be of some value to you. The podcast covers Rails deployment in a Linux environment including: subversion, capistrano, and secure shell. Hope this helps... Chris Matthieu - x.Net developer http://www.rubyology.com
