I have been putting off on upgrading Capy. There were a lot of changes between 2 and 3. I will have to try this out (if I get brave enough!!)
This guide describes upgrading from capistrano version 2.x to 3.x. In our company we use capistrano to deploy rails 3 & 4 applications on test- and production-server. Our servers run with apache and passenger gems apache module.
Why Upgrading To Capistrano 3.x
Well it is some work and you need to change a lot, this is true. The following reasons nevertheless convinced me to dive into this adventure:
- Cap 3 has out of the box multistage support
- As far as I know cap 2 support has ended. Last cap 2 gem update was 4. July 2013. The documentation of cap 2 (see) is referred to as “legacy” documentation.
- Cap 3 has a cleaner, more intuitive config file content structure and uses a news simpler DSL.
Now that I have your attention and hopefully have convinced you that upgrading to cap 3 is totally worth your time and effort…
