I have a Rails 3 application on WebFaction, and would like to use a separate Static-only application to serve its media to save memory and time.
I found a WebFaction guide for doing this with Django, but not with Rails. I was able to create a Static-only application and update the Rails site’s website record to use the static media application, based on the first three steps of those Django instructions. However, I am not sure how to configure Rails correctly to make use of the files that I copied into my Static-only application.
The general process applies for any site,
This applies for any website, running any framework. You may submit a support ticket if you would like us to look at your particular setup and make recommendations.
