Installation with Rails droplet

Hi, I use the Rails droplet on Ubuntu 18 to have a pre configured installation, because I’m new to this and don’t want to configure everything.

I have a rails application but can not access it in the browser. The configuration in nginx and puma is set to my application but in the browser is still “Yay! You’re on Rails!”.

Puma and nginx are restarted. What else is to configure? I found many tutorials, but all outdated.

thanks in advance. Chris

Hello, Chris

You can follow this article in order to configure your Rails App. It’s for Ubuntu 14.04, but I believe the process should not be that different for version 18.

Let us know how it goes.


The tutorial assumes that we start with a blank droplet, and gets us to setup everything from scratch. While if we’re starting with a one-click app, like the OP did, a lot of this doesn’t apply.

It would be great if you could write something about how to configure our existing RoR code to work with a one-click droplet and with all what comes with it.

Please help
