Most Rails applications are deployed in a Unix server environment. Tools like Capistrano make this dead easy. For those working in a Windows environment, deployment can get considerably harder. The good news is that it’s still possible and just got a lot easier.
Brian Hogan has developed a series of articles with instructions for various methods of deploying Rails applications in a Windows server environment. Broken up across four articles, the topics covered are as follows:
- Serving Multiple Rails Applications on Windows with Apache and Mongrel
- Integrate Rails into an Existing IIS Web infrastructure using Apache and FastCGI
- Integrate Rails into an Existing IIS Web infrastructure using Mongrel
- Integrate Rails into an Existing IIS Web Infrastructure using Lighttpd and Mongrel
Cheers to Brian for sharing the fruits of his labor.
