Deploying your Rails 3 app to Heroku from Debian GNU/Linux

Deploying apps to Heroku is as simple as

git push heroku master

But you need a little bit of setup first.

If you haven’t got git, install it with

apt-get install git-core

You will also need the Heroku gem

gem install heroku

Then set up your app, adding the files to the git repository

cd myapp
git init
git add *
git commit -m 'first commit, using git for pushes to heroku which hosts rails apps free and uses git'

Create a key for secure authentication to Heroku

ssh-keygen -t rsa -C ""
heroku keys:add

Create your heroku app

heroku create

And push your new rails app to it

git push heroku master

Now browse to the url you were given in previous steps as feedback from heroku, and you should see your app, now live !
