Topic: Capistrano touched restart.txt, but the site doesn't load...
Hi. I'm fairly new to Rails and very new to Capistrano and Passenger.
I'm trying to deploy our Rails app in production. Our server is running Ubuntu 10.10 and Passenger 3.0.4. "cap deploy" issued on my development box seems to do all the right things on the remote server, including restarting thinking_sphinx, creating new "releases" subdirectories, issuing new symlinks, etc.. But there's no obvious sign (say by doing a ps -eaf, for example) that an instance of our app has been spun up. Passenger is running, apache is running, thinking_sphinx is running, but browsing to our host's ip address + :3000 yields a "cannot display the webpage" message in IE.
sudo apachectl start restarts apache no problem. passenger start gets passenger standalone running no problem (in development mode) and doing that allows me to see the app in a browser. ruby script/server -e production also gets our app to display in the browser. But cap deploy by itself does not.
I've posted a related question on the passenger google group without any responses.
Any ideas what I might check to see where I've gone wrong?
Thanks in advance,
