OneBody

OneBody is open-source, web-based social networking and online directory software for churches. OneBody is built on Ruby on Rails 3 and MySQL.

Screenshots and feature information can be found at the commercial website.

Install on Ubuntu

OneBody is a complex app with a lot of moving parts. Installation can be lengthy, so we've tried to automate as much of the process as possible using Capistrano.

If you're dedicated server or VPS is Ubuntu 10.04 or higher, try this:

# 1. on your server:
sudo adduser deploy
sudo adduser deploy sudo
# copy your SSH public key to avoid password prompts
sudo apt-get install git-core curl build-essential zlib1g-dev libssl-dev libreadline5-dev imagemagick rsync
# follow http://rvm.beginrescueend.com/rvm/install/ to install RVM
rvm install ree
rvm use ree@onebody --create --default

# 2. on your local machine:
gem install capistrano
# edit config/deploy.rb to point to your server
cap prepare:ubuntu:mysql
cap prepare:ubuntu:apache
cap prepare:ubuntu:passenger
cap prepare:ubuntu:postfix
cap prepare:ubuntu:bundler
cap deploy:setup
cap deploy:migrations

# 3. on your server
# edit /etc/apache2/sites-available/default
# and point DocumentRoot to "/var/www/apps/onebody/current/public"
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 reload
# you may also need to set smtpd_use_tls=no in your /etc/postfix/main.cf

# 4. in your web browser:
# visit http://your-server-name-or-ip

We also have full step-by-step instructions in our INSTALL.md file.
