A chef recipe for enabling postgres on solo. Data is persisted to EBS so your db naturally restores if you grow/shrink your instances. An upcoming release of the ey-flex-gem will be delivering support for native eybackup features.
It's almost ready for everyone, it's working wonderfully for us right now.
% sudo gem install ey-flex
You'll also need your ey-cloud.yml credentials from ey's cloud.
mbp:: p/ey-postgrecipes » ey-recipes Current Environments: env: compton running instances: 1 instance_ids: ["i-5eu8x492"] mbp:: p/ey-postgrecipes » ey-recipes --update compton
Under rails you'll see an error like this.
Please install the postgres adapter: `gem install activerecord-postgres-adapter` (no such file to load -- active_record/connection_adapters/postgres_adapter)
You'll need to modify cookbooks/postgres/templates/default/database.yml.erb and set the adapter to 'postgresql' instead of 'postgres'. Just fork the project and do yo thang.
