Question

I don’t know too much about configuring nginx/apache. Right now I have managed hosting elsewhere with several domains. I want to move one domain here so I can host a rails app on a subdomain (managed hosting has crappy rails implementation) and keep my static files on the main domain. So basically I want to (1) move the whole site over (there’s not a lot there, a few directories with static pages) and (2) setup a subdomain with a rails app.

(1) I’d suggest you rsync the files over to your droplet, or tar them up and scp them if rsync is not available on your current hosting provider. <br>(2) Take a look at this article: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-install-rails-and-nginx-with-passenger-on-ubuntu
