Ruby on Rails and MediaTemple DV
Okay lets be honest. 10 hours later and this is not my favorite thing to do. RoR was much easier to get running on the GridServer, which seems to run the apps well.
We purchased the DV for work and it hasn't been the fastest thing to set up. Here is the article from the MediaTemple knowledgebase for setting up a Ruby on Rails with mongrel. It has you setting up a cluster of mongrels and the process is more difficult than the grid server. I was also unable to get Capistrano working on the DV. I found this recipe but things get hairy quickly.
Yikes! I need to find a good solution that is packaged up and ready to go.
