Guys, HELP!

How do I deploy a Rails Web app? I need a for dummies tutorial.
Anyone, please, HELP. Yes I'm a total idiot in the subject but it is
for a college paper, so I need it pretty URGENT

Thank you for your time.

capistrano is the easiest way.

I read "Deploying Rails Applications":
http://www.pragprog.com/titles/fr_deploy/deploying-rails-applications

and followed it step-by-step (except for the Capistrano part, because
I didn't have enough time...); it helped me a lot.

Good luck,

Chris.

That book is great...but it should be updated to focus on using
Passenger instead of mongrel.

I went the mongrel route after reading that book, and just recently
switched over to Passenger...it is *much* more stable and easier to
deploy. No need for monit or god to manage mongrel instances. My app
has not crashed since the switch.

Yeah, definitely use passenger if you can. Much less administration.
