Deploying Drupal example

The capistrano/ash/drupal library takes a hash of Drupal multisites in the following format.

set :multisites, {"default" => "mysite.com", "another" => "another.mysite.com"}

where each key is a folder in your sites directory and each value is the URL of the multisite. If you are not using multisites, just exclude the :multisites variable definition.

Check the Wiki for detailed configuration instructions.
