I am using ruby or rails ubuntu 64 droplet with nginx and unicorn.
By default the rails directory is located at" \home\rails".
How can I change this location to “\home\mytestapp” ?

Check out this tutorial for all the info on how the Ruby on Rails one-click application is built and how to deploy your own application on it:

This is covered in more detail there, but the quick answer is that you need to update the references to the demo app in a number of places:

  • /etc/unicorn.conf
  • /etc/default/unicorn
  • /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/rails

Replace mentions of /home/rails/rails_project with the path to your app: \home\rails\mytestapp
