How are you deploying your application?  Mix that command into that process, probably after you checkout the latest version of code.

This question should probably be in the Rails Zone:
Programming - Editors_IDEs - RubyOnRails

Well, if you're using the mod_rails setup, you can restart the webserver by creating a restart.txt file.  So, presumably you're going to be making changes to your software and putting them out on your website. When you do that, you'll need to restart the server.

Now, if you're using software that doesn't need a restart, like a blog, then you probably don't need to worry about that.

Is this software you're writing or something you got from somewhere else that you're setting up for your use?
