These are some notes to remind me how to spin up a new rails app, point it to a URL I bought from Google App Engine, and configure the DNS so my Heroku app points to my www domain.
1. Build your app.
2. Deploy it.
> heroku create –stack cedar
> git push heroku master
> heroku run rake db:migrate
Note the URL of the deployed app in Heroku
—–> Launching… done, v7
http://foo-bar-000.herokuapp.com deployed to Heroku
3. Tell Heroku to point to your domain.
4. Login into your Google Apps Cpanel domain
5. Point to your heroku instance.
Domain settings -> Domain names -> Advanced DNS settings
Note your URL and password and log into GoDaddy to make DNS config changes.
-> Sign into DNS console
The modify the www setting to point to heroku instance.
That’s it! You are done.
