Steps And Commands For RoR Application Deployment On Linode Server

I deployed my Ruby-on-Rails application on a cloud server.

About a couple of years ago, I got into this practice of hosting my applications on the cloud. At that time AWS did not offer Ubuntu machines. I love Ubuntu so I did not go to AWS. I also have this feeling that access and deployment procedures on the biggies (AWS and Azure) are slightly more cumbersome than the not-so-biggies. Amongst these, Site5 is the cheapest but I don't get root access and was very disappointed with their lack of support. For $20 a month, I got a 4 GB RAM server on Linode compared to 2 GB RAM on Digital Ocean. Hence I went with Linode.
