Setup your Ruby on Rails Server with Ansible

In an earlier post, we covered getting your application onto the internet without heroku by using Ansible. However sometimes just using some software that has been put together for you can be a little bit daunting, especially if you are not sure how it exactly works.

To help with that, I have put together a screencast to help you get from development with your Rails app, to deployed to the internet with Ansible and Capistrano. In the screencast below I talk you through what you need to get your application deployed and taking requests. With just a server, a domain name and Ansible, you can go from development to production in about a half an hour. So head down to the screencast and check out how you can get a Ruby on Rails application up and running and out into the world.


I've changed how I run my blog now and have decided to not integrate comments into this new version. I am happy to answer any questions though, feel free to send me an email through the link at the top of the screen. Happy Programming.
