Well, I was messing with server setup for Ruby on Rails again. I had created a script to walk thru the steps but it still seems to be a combination of try this, get an error, google the error, apply the fix, and try it again. If it works go to next step, and if not; repeat over and over.
Now the best option for hosting Rails apps is Heroku but this is not always an option. A lot of the other ‘paid’ Rails hosting options have ‘one-click’ server setup. What I am talking about is setting up a brand new Ubuntu 12.* server for Ruby on Rails.
I will be updating my step-by-step server setup and posting that soon…
Well, I wanted more, so I added more. I have taken Josh’s fine script and added some options that I wanted.
I now have it setup to ask what version Ruby you want installed. Right now that is a choice of 1.9.3 or 2.0.0. I am planning on setting that up to prompt for which version but I worry that users will enter a non-existing patch.
Next up is I am going to add option to choose from Mongodb, MySQL, and PostgreSQL.
Take a look at it and see what you think… https://github.com/brobertsaz/railsready
