Production Server Sysadmin Essentials from the Scout Team

Deploying Rails applications has definitely become easier with the use of tools like Capistrano and Phusion Passenger (a.k.a. mod_rails/mod_rack), but really keeping them serviceable, maintainable, and always humming along can require a bit of work.

Andre over at Scout has written a fantastic guide – a checklist, really for putting a Rails or Sinatra application in production and keeping it up in tip-top shape.

Read the Production Server Sysadmin Essentials or, as Andre likes to call it: “Sysadmin Eye for the Dev Guy”.
