Hi I am new to RoR.
I am on a mission to deploy my SpreeCommerce store to my VPS. It looks like a simple task but I have been working on it for 3 days.
Installing Spree and running it on development mode is a piece of cake. But I have no experience on deploying the app and automating the service on VPS.
Here is my plan:
Deploy it on a Puma web server using Nginx as a reverse proxy server.
Use some auto deployment tool (such as Capistrano or Phusion Passenger) to deploy it as a service so I don’t need to monitor the server manually.
What I have done:
installed Puma and run SpreeCommerce 3.0 on Puma web server,
Config Nginx to run my SpreeCommerce rails app on my VPS ip.
Now I need to use a deployment tool to deploy it as a service,
I have looked into Capistrano. I know it can do a lot of jobs, such as data migration and pulling source from a repository. But to be honest all I want is to deploy my
online store as a service on my VPS so I can start and stop it and run it at background. Capistrano is too much for me and the configuration looks so daunting.
Can I still find a simpler way to do what I need? Hope you can give me some suggestions. Thank you.
