Topic: Deployment with Passenger Phusion, is there a better way than FTP?

Hey.
Im using Passenger Phusion to run a few Rails sites..
I have to FTP all the files up with a restart.txt file everytime i want to see my changes online..

is there a better way?
thx

Re: Deployment with Passenger Phusion, is there a better way than FTP?

You can setup a git repository, though i have to admit im not sure of the best way to do that. With FTP, you shouldn't need a restart text file.

sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

should suffice.

im not the owner of the server so i aint gots sudo privleges.. the host suggested the restart.txt

thx
