If you're using the nginx-unicorn-postgres template and you can't get this to work:
This is because this template doesn't include a load-balancer. (Unicorn only works on a single machine). In the railscast, haproxy serves as the load balancer and runs in the web instance and delegates to the app instances. haproxy though is not a part of the nginx-unicorn-postgres template. As I understand it, you can either
a) add haproxy to your rubber setup and include it in the web role or
b) if you're using AWS, you can use amazon's ELB (Elastic Load Balancer)
