Difficulty getting Rails working on Ubuntu 14.04
I have a rails application that works fine on my local machine when I run
However I am having trouble getting it working on DO. The exact commands I have run are as follow
#create droplet with ubuntu and 1-click rails application #open up server's console via ssh or online console rm -rf /home/rails/* apt-get install git cd /home/rails git init git remote add origin MY_GIT_REPO git pull origin master #must add swapfile for bundle install to work fallocate -l 512M /swapfile chmod 600 /swapfile mkswap /swapfile swapon /swapfile #make swapfile permanent nano /etc/fstab # add this line to bottom of file --> /swapfile none swap sw 0 0 #back to the rails stuff bundle install #switch from sqlite to mysql2, eventually (note I have not done this yet) #need to add mysql2 to gemfile and edit config/database.yml using https://gist.github.com/erichurst/961978 bundle exec rake db:create db:schema:load db:seed nano config/environments/production.rb # Set `config.assets.compile = true` chown -R rails:www-data * service unicorn restart exec bundle rails s -d
After I run this it appears my IP is up and running (there’s no error shown), but my index page is not shown. Thanks for the help!
