This is legacy documentation for Capistrano 2.x. For Capistrano 3.x, please refer to

General Resources & Beginner Guides

If you are new to Capistrano 2.x please read Getting Started; once you are familiar with the basics, you may want to read From the beginning which is a much more detailed tutorial. There is also an FAQ here.

You may also want to read and/or contribute to the Capistrano handbook - an immature document that holds some really useful tips, but needs a lot more work!
