Hi, I was trying to understand everything need to be known to deploy ROR manually. Does someone have some valuable article on that. I am using ROR 4 with ruby 2.1.x and webfaction as an host. I would like to understand that before automating. It seams there is only one way to deploy right now, capistrano 2 or 3 if you can understand, and there is so little complete and up to date information on it. It is a nightmare for me right now. Than you very much

For example, you typically want to be able to reuse the gems, compiled assets etc from the previous deploy, the normal approach is to put those things in a folder and then symlink them. There are other tools such as vlad the deployer, mina or git-deploy (for a heroku style deploy-on-git-push workflow) Fred
