To run as a daemon (try this from a console)
ruby script/server -e production </dev/null >/dev/null 2>/var/log/ruby_errors.log &
The redirections test whether ruby can tolerate being started with no attached terminal. As long as that works, you are on your way. To start it automatically, you will need to put something in /etc/rc.d/rc.local (or some similarly-named existing file - I'm not familiar with Ubuntu).
Your main challenge will be to set up the environment so ruby will run. It will likely not work to simply copy the above line into rc.local. Instead, insert a line to run a script (which you will have to write) which sets up the environment (probably at least the PATH variable, maybe others). Then this script would include the command line above.

To complement duncan_roe answer:
in Ubuntu, you need to create a file called
/etc/init.d/local

Open in new window

and place the startup of the ruby there.

with very detailed comments and an example.
