First create rails_app folder in public_html (this is not necessary but
I prefer all rails app should be placed there.)

Step1:

Create app in $HOME/rails folder

$HOME/rails: rails app_name

Step 2:
Create a subdomain from the control panel...

create subdomain with any_name (for exmple app_name)
path should be /public_html/rails_app/app_name

Step 3:

Remove app_name dir from the /public_html/rails_app/

rm -rf /public_html/rails_app/app_name

Step 4:
Create symlink for app_name application

ln -s $HOME/rails/app_name/public/ $HOME/public_html/rails_app/app_name

Step 5:

Set .htaccess file

% touch ~/rails/app_name/public/.htaccess

Now, edit the newly created file with your favorite editor and add the
following:

# General Apache options
AddHandler fcgid-script .fcgi

RewriteEngine On

RewriteRule ^$ index.html [QSA]
RewriteRule ^([^.]+)/!$ $1.html [QSA]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.*)$ dispatch.fcgi [QSA,L]

Let me know if you have any problem in this...or not understand
nething,..

thanks Brijesh Shah

please let me know how to login to the host monster web server
console.

You should ask them to create you an SSH account. After that, it
depends of your OS for how to login. If you are using windows,
download putty, else in OS X or linux you can login directly from the
console

ok thanks.
