Topic: Help on deploying a Rails application onto a web server
I have a web server running on DreamHost and am trying to put a Rails app i made onto the server.
I followed this tutorial on the DreamHost wiki site: http://wiki.dreamhost.com/Getting_Start
and the basic rails start-up page worked on my domain site.
However when I tried to upload any other app that was even slightly more complex than the "Welcome to Rails" page I got this
passenger error page :
Ruby (Rack) application could not be started
Error message: Could not find rake-10.0.3 in any of the sources (Bundler::GemNotFound)
I thought that this might be a result of me not freezing the gems to the app but when I tried to do so (following the dreamhost tutorial) I got this error message:
An error occurred while installing mysql2 (0.3.11), and Bundler cannot continue.
Make sure that `gem install mysql2 -v '0.3.11'` succeeds before bundling.
I tried various different ways of installing mysql but it didn't work.
I'm really stumped as it seems that nothing is working for me so I was hoping that someone could shed some light on the issue for me.
