Our Rails deployments are run by passenger on the application servers, to automatically restart passenger workers after a deploy you should include the
Gemfile by adding this line:
gem 'capistrano-passenger', require: false
And install it by calling
To actually be able to use the tasks this Gem provides you have to also
require it in your
Capfile like this:
# Include passenger tasks # This automatically sets up deploy:restart to run after :publishing is complete require 'capistrano/passenger'
As the comment says, just the presence of this line automatically calls
deploy:restart and will restart your passenger workers after the
:publishing task was successful.
