This is my first rails production server, so bare with me. I'm hosting a Rails 4 app on an ec2 instance and using Nginx, I added a view to a controller and was getting an error trying to navigate to the page through my browser till I reloaded nginx.conf. Once it came up I made some changes to the view but those weren't showing either till I reloaded nginx.conf again.
Obviously I don't want to reload nginx.conf every time I need to change a view. Is there something I'm missing to make this easier on myself?
Here is my nginx.conf file.
#access_log logs/host.access.log main;
My environments/production.rb file
config.cache_classes = true
config.eager_load = true
config.consider_all_requests_local = false
config.action_controller.perform_caching = true
config.serve_static_files = false
config.assets.js_compressor = :uglifier
config.assets.compile = true
Your nginx config appears to be using passenger. By default, in production mode all file content is parsed once, and cached in memory - so changes will not be immediately noticeable. To force a refresh, you need to at a minimum restart passenger. This can be done by simply touching the tmp/restart.txt file in your application root directory.
