I am trying to develop a website on digital ocean and I followed the instructions as best I could but for some reason when I view my website, all I get is the index of / instead of my actual website homepage. I am running ruby on Rails with a MySQL backend and the Ruby version is 1.9.3 and Rails is 3.2.14.


I don't know why this is happening and I feel I got everying in the correct places but it still appears. Any help on getting this thing fully deployed would be very helpful. I want this website up and running, and if possible steps to prevent something like this from happening in the future would be helpful to me. Give me the answer to this, but also teach me so I can follow the steps so I could resolve this on my own in the future please.


This is my website view


my rails website is located at



my apache server config is pointed to the public piece



My Apache config file is:

LoadModule passenger_module /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p484/gems/passenger-$
   <IfModule mod_passenger.c>
     PassengerRoot /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p484/gems/passenger-4.0.36
     PassengerDefaultRuby /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-1.9.3-p484/wrappers/ruby

      ServerName www.duelingpets.net
      # !!! Be sure to point DocumentRoot to 'public'!
      DocumentRoot /var/www/duelingpets.net/public
      <Directory /var/www/duelingpets.net/public>
         # This relaxes Apache security settings.
         AllowOverride all
         # MultiViews must be turned off.
         Options -MultiViews
