Shared hosting almost never works well for this kind of stuff,
unfortunately all the silly sh** they do makes each one different (and

It's whatever your host tells you is the "web root", the problem is Cap
assumues that it can work one-level up from there, so your shared host will
probably not let you do that (Cap assumes that it can manage the directory
that CONTAINS your web root)

Yep, you *might* have some success with `set :use_sudo, false`, but I
wouldn't bet on it, try to find a host who aren't hopeless. (Although if
you are still at "shared hosting" level, maybe Heroku might be a better bet
for your small app)
