Free ruby on rails hosting...

Hi

I have a ror app ready...i have tested it on my local machine using
webrick.
Now i need to test it on the net.
Please let me know a site which offers free ROR hosting.

YES i did search this forum on this topic before posting.
I found a lot of topics, most of them were recommending heroku.com

But that site woks only with invites, if somebody can send me an invite,
that would be fine.

or if you know of alternative sites please let me know.

Thanks
Prasanna

This is not free, but it's pretty close. For less than $2 a month you get a heck of a lot.

I'm *very* happy with them.
A couple of disclaimers: That's a referrer link. If you sign up through it I'll actually make a buck or two. If that bugs you, here's a plain vanilla link:

Also, I've had a bunch of sites with them for years. I haven't yet converted any of those to rails. But their customer service is so good I don't expect any troubles.

Prasanna,

If you simply want to show it off to your friends -- you can sign up
for a free dev account at www.mor.ph. (I work for Morph.) If you need
to deploy in production, you can opt to get the next plan, which just
starts at $1 a day.

Thanks a lot Machel.

I enjoyed devoloping my app using ruby on rails(i started with rails
1.2.2).
and was happy to see the output, via the webrick server and I thought
this is it, i can now just copy the zip file of my rorapp, to any
webfolder and it should be up and running....(like any of the other app,
like php, jsp etc...).

I dint realize that deployment would be a horror.

I have read this capistrino stuff......that remebers me of ejb
deployment...updating hunderds of xmls......ended no mans land.

I could provide you the zip of my ror app, can you please help me in
deploying my app?

Once this is successful, im planning to write a step by step article on
ror deployment...

Thanks
Prasanna

Hi Prasanna,

I'd love to help you out with your deployment. Prior to deployment,
you have to check on a few things such as:

- locking all your gems for production applications so that your
application is using the gems you have tested and know work, rather
than relying on the server gems which may or may not be compatible.
for help, you can check out http://gemsonrails.rubyforge.org. if one
or more gems can't be locked, send you gem installation to us and our
team will check if we can add that to our servers.
- Capistrano 2.x must be installed on your system
- and a few other things

Please email me directly at macel [at] mor dot ph so that I can help
you further.

Regards,
Macel
