This repository is used to quickly build an Ubuntu Rails Linode VPS for RailsRumble via Chef Solo. Includes:
Mysql 5 Memcached Apache2 +Passenger Nginx +Passenger
A deploy user is generated and assumes you will deploy your app to /var/www/sites/u/app/. The deploy user has access to sudo via nopasswd.
Chef Solo allows you to run Chef Cookbooks in the absence of a Chef Server. It does this by requiring that the complete cookbook be present on disk, which it will fetch by getting a tarball from a remote URL.
