    …d getting 503 errors when some (but not all) back-ends are down. (The random director doesn't necessarily try all back-ends, even if retries is set >= than the number of back-ends.)
    
    BTW this is only for balancing between back-end nginx servers and there's no problem doing round-robin here, the web servers themselves are still using Passenger's global queueing to balance between the Rails back-ends so there is no issue with one slow request holding up all the others.
  2. Fixed a typo.

    …slow if there is a large database that already exists. This matters especially after changing the running instances (e.g. adding more app servers) because when you do ec2onrails:setup it will run db:create (harmless) on the existing db.
    
    Added a TODO in create_database to do the backup then, but first we need to check for the existence of the db and exit if it exists.

  3. Cleaned up the before/after hooks and cap tasks a bit:

    committed Oct 22, 2009
    1. Stop using deploy:cold
    2. Removed the db:optimize hook (if it should be run on setup then it should be part of the ec2onrails:setup task, but it's untested right now and I'm reluctant to add it to the default setup until someone can confirm that it works)
    3. run ec2onrails:db:init_backup after creating the db
    4. removed the add_gem_sources task, gem dependencies in recent versions of Rails can specify a source
    5. purge the proxy cache after redeploying
