yes, but it has nothing to with git

You did push all the changes to git before deploying?

digital ocean support response:

This is because when a new version of your app is deployed, the directory is empty. Fortunately, you can resolve this by creating a symlink to a shared directory. You can do this by editing the deploy.rb file, changing the following line

set :linked_dirs, %w{bin log tmp/pids tmp/cache tmp/sockets vendor/bundle public/system}

to: set :linked_dirs, %w{bin log tmp/pids tmp/cache tmp/sockets vendor/bundle public/system

and its working now
