Deploying Websites with Capistrano

Deploying Websites with Capistrano

How do you currently publish updates to your website? How do you undo changes if you've made a mistake?

Manually uploading files via FTP can lead to mistakes or downtime and are difficult to roll back. Other techniques such as remote repositories or post-receive hooks are better but can limit your ability to control the way updates are applied to the website.

Come learn how to streamline and automate the process of both deploying and rolling back updates to your website with Capistrano, a remote server automation tool.
