How I setup this website

Posted on   04-10-2011 17:24 by admin

I started with reading Ruby on Rails for company requirement. I was really amazed the way I could build a simple web sites with some few commands. Then I started getting serious about building my own website using ROR...

How I started
First thing was finding a domain name. I was looking for some short name for my website. Unfortunately none of the short name was available. This process took around a month to decide on a domain name. Then to start with I registered . I could able to add the functionality within a week spending two to three hours per day. Then started working on the UI. The real challenge was that, working on CSS and applying to the current site. It was nightmare. Each day I keep changing the UI. During this process I discovered that design is not my cup of tea. By doing lots of googling in the net I could able to understand what this CSS all about. Started applying CSS and much of my time was spent on UI. Somehow managed to give a fair look to the site. Thanks to Free CSS Templates and
Next comes hosting plan. Which service provider to choose, who supports ROR hosting etc. By doing little research I could able to decide on Dreamhost. They had some free offer for three months and 50% discount by using the promo code. If you would like to get that offer ($ 72 Off from total bill) enter this promo code D72PROMOFF. Click here for more details DreamHost. It was a pretty good deal with them for me. I end up paying $35 for a year with 3 primary domains, unlimited sub-domains and unlimited bandwidth. The service is so far satisfactory even through here and there some glitch was there. Overall with moderate hits the deal is good as a shared host.
As it was a learning process of ROR I wanted to try out each and everything in it, including version control. First I setup the Git at Dream Host. Please refer my other post on How I setup Git in DreamHost on Technical articles section. It was pretty strait forward and it works perfect for me. For deployment I used Capistrano. Refer my other post on Capistrano Deployment in Dream Host. After some gem version install and uninstall things started working fine. Deployment with Capistrano was working like a charm until I noticed in one of the deployment that all my documents and images which uploaded through my website are gone. To solve this issue there is something called
Symlink which can be set to avoid new deployment deleting all those old images and pictures which you uploaded through your site.

    Hi, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues. When I look at your blog site in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, very go
