Hosting Ruby on Rails on GoDaddy - Solved!

Hello all,

I know how very challenging it can be to host a ROR application of
GoDaddy. The good news is that after 10 days of blood, sweat and
tears, I finally got it

to work!!!

First, let me start by saying that I'm somewhat of a newbie to Rails.
However, I've been programming in Java and/or C# for the last 10+
years so I've been

around the block a couple times when it comes to this stuff. Secondly,
this was undoubtedly one of the most challenging development tasks
I've undertaken

this year, so please don't feel bad if you didn't get it to work the
first 10 attempts because it took me waaaaay more than that!. Well,
with that said, I'm

sure you're eager to get to the how-to so let's do it.

Right now, I'd love to write a few paragraphs on how GoDaddy's Ruby on
Rails support and documentation is abominal, but that would only be
preaching to the

choir... Instead, let's make some lemonade :slight_smile:

One more thing, please forgive and typing/spelling errors, I'm writing
this in Notepad.

My Setup

Thanks for your detailed step installing rails!!!
After following your instruction and installing 1.1.6 rails application
I tried installing also 2.*applications but it wasn’t so easy. There was
an error for a gem method not recognized on godaddy server and I
discovered that the problem can be resolved replacing gem calls with the
oldest require_gem call. After replacing all these method in
vendor/rails files I successfully installed my rails 2.0.5 application
on GoDaddy.
I wrote a page with all the steps at
http://rubyonrails.matteotomasini.com/deployment
I hope it will be useful for someone…
Thanks again
Matteo

domain and a hosting plan. I really could not understand from where and
how to start to deploy rails application .

Can anyone please tell how to proceed.

GoDaddy supports Rails officially, so talk to their tech support. If
that doesn't work, then get your money back and use a different host.
I've never heard anything good about GoDaddy's Rails support.

BTW, a warning: don't ever use GoDaddy's e-mail hosting. Their spam
filter is overactive and misconfigured, and can't be turned off. This
results in rejection of lots of legitimate mail.

thank you
