Deploying to Rackspace Cloud Files

Beanstalk supports deployments to Rackspace Cloud Files -- an easy-to-use online storage for files and media. Beanstalk can upload files from your Git and Subversion repository to your Rackspace Cloudfiles either automatically on every commit or push, or manually.

Getting started

When you create a new Environment in the Deployments section you will see a list of available server types that you can add to the environment:

Business-level accounts can add multiple servers to the same environment, enabling you to deploy to various server types at once. For example, you may have both an SFTP and a Cloud Files server in your Production environment.;

After selecting the Cloud Files server type, you will be presented with the following form to enter your Cloud Files settings:

The form is quite straightforward. Here's a description of some of the fields:

  • Username, API Key - you can grab your username and API keys in your Rackspace Cloud Account settings.
  • Container - the name of container in the Cloud Files account. If you don't have any containers yet, Beanstalk will create it for you automatically during deployment.
  • Remote path - points to a directory inside your Container where you wish to deploy files from your repository.

Once you're done with the form and click Check Connection, Beanstalk will verify your credentials and make sure that your Container in exists in the account. After that you will be presented with the optional settings like excluding some of the files from deployment. Only thing left to do is deploy your files!
