 I've trying day and night for the past month to deploy a rails app and
I just can't get it. I followed every guide on the web. Using Git, SVN,
Capistrano, Passenger, ect.

 The guide that has brought me the closest is:

http://railstips.org/2008/11/24/gitn-your-shared-host-on

and

http://railstips.org/2008/12/14/deploying-rails-on...


 At the very last step when I cap deploy I start getting all sorts of
errors like "Can't find Rake file" and some directory errors.

 Can someone link me a "idiot proof guide" on how to deploy? I'm on
ubuntu 8.10 and am hosting on Dreamhost.

In the beginning, you can try without Capistrano. Capistrano is for
automating deployments but if you're not familiar with the deployment
itself then it's best you get familiar with it first, before writing any
kinds of automation.

Have you already tried uploading your Rails application to the web
server, and setting up an Apache virtual host as is described in the
Phusion Passenger manual? That should be as easy as it possibly can be.

I have figured it out, it was a mispell error in the code after I had a
tech at dreamhost.com look at it. Thanks for replying though.
