Over the last few months I wrote an in depth tutorial series on using Capistrano. This covered:

Part 1
What is Capistrano and why is it so good?
Part 2
Secure SSH key based Capistrano website deployment from Subversion for multi-developer teams
Part 3
Using Capistrano for deploying PHP and other none Rails based websites
Part 4
Combining Capistrano and Drush for deploying Drupal powered websites

Unfortunately about two months ago Capistrano version 3 was released which has made my tutorial somewhat redundant. You can't stand in the way of progress though so I've recreated the series for Capistrano 3.

The 'why is Capistrano so good' post from the Cap v2 series is still perfectly valid for Cap v3. In a nutshell:

  • Effortless one line deploys
  • Stress free one line roll-backs

What's not to like! For a fuller explanation feel free to skim read my introductory Capistrano v2 blog post.

As a result this will be a three part series:

Part 1
Secure SSH key based website deployment from Subversion using Capistrano 3
Part 2
Using Capistrano 3 for deploying PHP and other none Rails based websites
Part 3
Combining Capistrano 3 and Drush for deploying Drupal powered websites

Happy reading!
