FCGI process not starting

I am a nuby to rails. I am trying to setup capistrano for one of my rails projects on dreamhost. I guess I got everything setup but the fcgi process is not firing up resulting in 500. I am using Capistrano2 (is this the problem?).

Is there any complete howto to do this?

Here are my steps.

  1. installed capistrano2 on my home desktop
  2. capify .
  3. modified deploy.rb
  4. cap deploy:setup
  5. cap deploy:cold

I assume there is no need for spinner task

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
