Rails Deployment

Posted June 19, 2013 6.9k views
I am currently developing a Rails web app, with mySQL database, on my windows 7 PC. I need to deploy the web app from my windows development pc to my Ubuntu 12.04 x32 Server, running Nginx and passenger, for testing and demonstration purposes. I realise that deploying from windows to Linux is probably not ideal but I would like to know if there are any best practices or tools that would assist me in this task and any future changes I will be making to the web app. Thanks in advance Michael
