The blog of Rahoul Baruah from 3hv Ltd

What's going on?

My name is Rahoul Baruah (aka Baz) and I'm a software developer in Leeds (England).

This is a log of things I've discovered while writing software in Ruby on Rails. In other words, geek stuff.

However, I've decided to put this blog on ice - I would ask you to check out my business blog here (or subscribe here).

Shared Host Fix

I've found out what the shared host problem was. I must have upgraded my local copy of Capistrano to the latest. Which changes the permissions used on deployment - instead of 755 they are 775. This causes problems on shared hosts because it effectively means you can execute scripts on other people's accounts. So a patch has been submitted for Capistrano and you need to add the following to your deployment script.


task :set_permissions do
donothing = true
end

Bluehost is definitely one of the best web-hosting provider for any hosting plans you might require.
