Capistrano after_update_code Questions


When doing a capistrano deploy, just before the symlink task occurs I’d like to change the permissions on the new release that capistrano pulls out of my repository. I suppose one way of doing this would be to write a cusom task that determine which of the releases in the relases directory is the most current, then change permissions. However, I’m wondering if there is an easier way. Are there any variables that contain the name–timestamp–that capistrano assigns to this most recent release of my code?

Thanks, Steven

Try the variable "current_release". See for reference

desc "After Update Task" task :after_update_code do   run <<-CMD     chmod TOWHATEVER #{release_path}   CMD end

This would do.
