Note: This tutorial is now quite dated, so I would not recommend attempting to follow it. Instead, take a look at Media Temple’s instructions for configuring Mongrel Clusters.
I recently deployed a Ruby on Rails application to Media Temple’s Dedicated Virtual Server 3.0 setup, and after running into a few problems along the way, eventually got everything working nicely.
I decided to publish my steps and documentation for anyone else who might possibly benefit from what I learned. If you’re not in that very small group of people, there’s probably not much for you to see here. If you’re still curious though, continue reading after the jump.
