Step 1: You need to install Apache (if you don't already have it installed):

sudo apt-get install apache2 apache2-mpm-prefork apache2-prefork-dev

Step 2: Install Phusion Passenger (an Apache module that lets you run Rails apps easily):

cd path
sudo gem install passenger
sudo passenger-install-apache2-module

Step 3: The passenger-install-apache2-module script will guide you through what you need to do to get Passenger working. It should tell you to copy these lines into your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf:

LoadModule passenger_module /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-2.2.2/ext/apache2/
PassengerRoot /usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/passenger-2.2.2
PassengerRuby /usr/bin/ruby1.8

Step 4: Enable mod_rewrite for Apache:

sudo a2enmod rewrite

Step 5: Clone or copy the project to this path -> /var/www/opengradebook, this will create a folder in the current directory called 'opengradebook' with all the files needed to run your Rails app.

cd /var/www/
git clone

Step 6: Now you can add a vhost for you project. Create a file in /etc/apache2/sites-available/ for your site (something like '') and insert this:

<VirtualHost *>
    # Change these 3 lines to suit your project
    RailsEnv production
    DocumentRoot /var/www/opengradebook/public # Note the 'public' directory

Note: Remember change the ServerName to your domain

Step 7: Enable your new site and restart Apache:

sudo a2ensite
sudo /etc/init.d/apache2 restart

Remember change to your domain

Optional: You might also need to make an entry in your etc/hosts file and restart your browser:
