Installing a RoR app on a webhost

Just figure I'd share a few steps which are useful in getting a RoR application up and running on a web hosting provider. Obviously the steps will vary depending on your specific provider, but most should be the same assuming your given access to a home directory on the web server under which public_html resides.

Though the process is pretty straightforward, since your not in control of the entire web server you may run into some tricky points as evident through the many related posts out there. Also your web application may have bugs of its own, further complicating the situation. Just stick to it and you should get it eventually.
