RE: digitalocean/linode automated Rails setup


Are there any good server automation scripts that can bootstrap a Rails server on something like linode/digitalocean that you can recommend?

Something that installs basic security, Rails, postgresql, and nginx etc?



Looks interesting, but I am looking for something that I have total control over and not a 3rd party service that costs $$.

Than you need to write your own provisioning scripts using Chef, Ansible, Puppet, or SaltStack. Or if you’re on AWS use OpsWorks.

Either way it’s going to require time and money to some degree.

Well I was asking if there was an open source script that has it all done already.

There are existing chef, ansible and puppet stuff around. Google is your friend.
