I had issues installing Postgres with the instructions in this Railscast. However I was able to get postgres running on my project with http://postgresapp.com/ and http://inductionapp.com/ (Hat tip to this stackoverflow thread).

  1. Download & install Postgres.app (documentation) Make sure to install in /Applications.
  2. Update your PATH
    In my case I added the following to ~/.bash_profile
    export PATH="/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/MacOS/bin:$PATH"
    Check that Postgres.app is being loaded
$ which psql
/Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/MacOS/bin/psql
  1. Update /config/database.yml
development:
     adapter: postgresql
     encoding: unicode
     database: myapp_development
     pool: 5
     host: localhost
  1. bundle exec rake db:create:all
  2. I'm hosting my app on Heroku so then ran a heroku db:pull
  3. Download & install Induction.
  4. Launch Induction and connect using these settings.
    NOTE Select the last postgres option in Adapter dropdown
Adapter     postgres
Hostname    localhost
Username    [I left this blank]
Password    [I left this blank]
Port        5432
Database    [I left this blank]
  1. Once Induction launches you can select your app's database from list in top left dropdown.

small typo in transcription (ASCIIcast)

/app/sweepers/products_sweeper.rb

should be singular

/app/sweepers/product_sweeper.rb

Ryan thanks for the excellent deployment series.

I'm attempting to deploy to Linode following these recipes and get the following error when I try to cold deploy:

ruby
failed: "sh -c 'if [ -d /home/deployer/apps/alexapp/shared/cached-copy ]; then cd 
/home/deployer/apps/alexapp/shared/cached-copy && git fetch -q origin && git

clone -q git@github.com:alexagui/alexapp.git

Suggestions in right direction will be greatly appreciated.
