This is a repository of some basic recipes for EY-Cloud using chef to deploy, setup, and configure common tools for Rails applications.


Follow these steps to use custom deployment recipes with your applications.

  • Install the engineyard gem: $ gem install engineyard
  • Add any custom recipes or tweaks to your copy of these recipes.
  • Upload them with: ey recipes upload -e ENV, where ENV is the name of your environment in Engine Yard Cloud. This may be different than your Rails environment name.
  • Once you have completed these steps, each rebuild will run the your recipes after the default Engine Yard recipes have run. When you update your recipes, just re-run ey recipes upload -e ENV.
