An abstraction of the Sprinkle scripts I use to set up a Rails environment on a Debian Linode, although it should work on any Debian 5.0 install.
What does it install?
It can also copy over any virtual hosts you create in
Install sprinkle, if you do not already have it.
gem install sprinkle
Now download or clone sprinkle-linode.
git clone git://github.com/tristandunn/sprinkle-linode.git
Edit, rename, or remove the the configuration files in
deploy.rband edit the settings appropriately. For more details on possible options, see Capistrano.
cp deploy.example.rb deploy.rb
sprinkle -c -s install.rb
Now grab a drink, sit back, and relax. It will install everything in around 15 minutes!
The majority of this is based on the examples provided with Sprinkle.
