How to deploy Rails app on my laptop

Hello People,

I have created a tiny Rails app for my personal use. I want to host it
on my personal computer (just like PHP can be hosted easily). I use
Ubuntu Linux, can any one tell me how to do it? Is there any
documentation? Has any one tried it out?

Thanks in advance.

This is easily done, if you consider "Install Apache; gem install passenger; gem install passenger-apache; follow post install config instructions" to be easy.


I would just run passenger standalone (using Nginx)

Have you got it running in development mode on your laptop? If so you
can just run it in the same way but specify production mode when you
start the server. That will be fine if it is just for personal use on
your laptop.

rails server -e production
