Has anyone used rubber for DigitalOcean deploys?

  • Posted February 23, 2014

Hi everyone. I’ve been using rubber to deploy my rails app on aws servers for a while now, but would love to switch over to DigitalOcean for the savings on server costs. However, I can’t currently ssh into any droplets created via rubber. I’m associating an ssh key pair with the droplet, so the root users password should just be nil, but this doesn’t seem to be working.

So I guess the short question is: Have any of you successfully deployed a rails app with rubber to DigitalOcean? If so would you mind walking me through how you managed to spin up your droplets?


I have same problem… =/

<blockquote> root users password should just be nil</blockquote>The root password is still set to a random string even if you’re using SSH keys. The only difference is that you won’t be given the password if you choose to use ssh keys. <br> <br>Does <a href=“”>this</a> help?
