Rails Server Template
This is a template chef structure for deploying Rails applications. The example template and Vagrantfile provide a single VM configuration which works out of the box and can be used to deploy any Rails 3.x, 4.x or 5.x application. It's most suitable as a drop in Heroku replacement.
The configuration is also flexible enough to be adapted to multi machine setups.
This is the example code which section one of the book "Reliably Deploying Rails Applications" available from leanpub here https://leanpub.com/deploying_rails_applications is based.
If you run into any issues using the template provided here, please open a Github issue, I actively monitor these and will respond as quickly as possible.
This template is designed to work on Ubuntu 16.04 (the current LTS) and is tested regularly against Digital Ocean and Linode.
When opening an issue, please include the Ubuntu version and provider the issue was encountered on.
