I recently upgraded Drifting Ruby's site from Ruby 2.6 to Ruby 2.7 as part of some general maintenance. The Beanstalk instance was using an older version of Amazon Linux. During the upgrade process, I discovered that it wasn't a simple transition. In this episode, we look at the discovery path and how to successfully deploy your Ruby on Rails application to AWS Elastic Beanstalk with Amazon Linux 2 and Ruby 2.7.
Back in Episode #106, we configured and deployed to a very simple AWS Beanstalk environment. However, in this episode, we take things a bit further and explore security groups, an existing database and redis service. Also, there are a few changes that we have to do in order to get Rails 6 working within Beanstalk.
