There are many posts out there that talk about deploying your Rails App on any Linux distro and how to get it to start at boot, none of them worked for me, so I thought I would document here what I've tried.
Firstly create a file called
/etc/systemd/system with the following contents:
[Unit] Description=Puma HTTP Server After=network.target [Service] Type=simple User=deployer WorkingDirectory=/var/www/apps/appname/current ExecStart=/bin/bash -lc 'bundle exec puma -C /var/www/apps/appname/shared/puma.rb Restart=always [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
Don't forget to replace
appname with your App's actual name. Then issue the following commands:
sudo systemctl enable <appname>.service
In order to enable the service
sudo systemctl start
sudo systemctl status
Hope this will be helpful to you.
