Here is a quick guide to deploy Diaspora* on OpenShift, the cloud solution powered by RedHat
{{Note|OpenShift support is still work in progress and not official, see the [https://github.com/MrZYX/diaspora-openshift/issues open issues]}}
# Create an account on [OpenShift https://openshift.redhat.com/app/] (it's free !)
Go to https://github.com/jhass/diaspora-openshift and follow the readme there.
# Choose Ruby on Rails application
# Choose a public URL and change "Source Code" to git://github.com/diaspora/diaspora.git
# Keep a copy of your MySQL settings, you will need it ;)
# Connect to your cloud with ssh : You have a example with git :
<pre>git clone ssh://a-lot-of-number-and-letters@yourappli-yournamspace.rhcloud.com/~/git/yourappli.git/</pre>
Connect by transform this command to
<pre>ssh a-lot-of-number-and-letters@yourappli-yournamspace.rhcloud.com</pre>
You probably need to set a public key in your account setting first. If you don't have one, generate one with ssh-keygen and put it in .ssh in your home
In your cloud, go to the app folder :
<pre>cd app-root/repo/
run bundle install :
bundle install</pre>
Edit your diaspora.yml and database.yml file :
<pre>cd config
mv diaspora.yml.example diaspora.yml
mv database.yml.example database.yml
nano diaspora.yml</pre>
edit the url and remove the # in front of <pre>certificate_authorities: '/etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt'</pre> and <pre>port: 3000</pre>
Enter <pre>$OPENSHIFT_MYSQL_DB_HOST</pre> in your shell to know the IP of the database, then edit the file with
<pre>nano database.yml</pre>
And edit host with the IP found, put the username and the password saved on step 4. Change the socket to MySQL with the value below too. (host can work by letting localhost)
<pre>host:" #"localhost"
port: 3306
username: "admin"
password: "xxx"
socket: ~/mysql-5.1/socket/mysql.sock</pre>
Okay, so now, connect to the mysql database with
<pre>mysql -u admin -p</pre>
then create the diaspora database with
<pre>CREATE DATABASE diaspora_production;</pre>
and <pre>exit</pre>
You can now create the tables with
<pre>RAILS_ENV=production bundle exec rake db:schema:load</pre>
