I am new to RoR. I am working my way through Agile Web Dev w/ Rails in
an effort to take over as web developer for a current RoR app.
This site is currently deployed on TextDrive and is not taking
advantage of several of the more useful (IMO) advantages of Ruby on
Rails and TextDrive. Specifically, db migration, Subversion and
following the TextDrive instructions for setting up and using RoR and
Now, my client is talking about moving hosting over to GoDaddy.com.
They don't have Subversion or Capistrano, but their tech support is
significantly more accessible than TextDrive.
This app does not need multiple servers and the developer team consists
of ME, so, is Subversion and Capistrano worth staying with TextDrive?
Am I completely off-base?
I have also tried to get on the IRC RoR channel, but no one ever
responds to my questions. Still haven't figured out if I am doing
something wrong connecting or if I am being inadvertantly rude.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
