How to add Rails app on Bluehost server?

Hello everybody and I'm sorry that my first post is a question but I got a problem and it's quite important for me. I have a bluehost hosting account and I need to upload my rails apps on it. The problem is that whatever I do, no success. It's not working.

I have SSH access. I've created an application from command line into etc/rails_apps: - rails -D -d mysql first I've uploaded .htaccess (the one from here - http://helpdesk.bluehost.com/index.php/kb/article/000207), dispatch files are chmoded to 755, index.html deleted.

The result: 403 Permission Denied - http://netsight.ro/media/

Can somebody please help me? Thank you very much.

I tried to put my first Rails project up on Bluehost but gave up after not finding any help ... their help articles at the time were just plain wrong and the support was non-existent.

I was already using GIT for version control so I switched over to "Heroku":http://heroku.com/ and had my application served about ten minutes.

There are some more alternatives in the "Good Rails hosting needed":http://www.workingwithrails.com/forums/1/topics/766-good-rails-hosting-needed thread

Good luck, Bryan
