How do I run a Rake task for my app?

The easiest way is to SSH into your server, cd into your app's current directory and run the Rake task. For this, you'll need to make sure you added your SSH keys to the server so you can login.
cd myapp/current
bundle exec rake mytask
The second option is to use the Scripts feature. You can write your script to do the same thing as above.
First, visit to create a new script. Make sure it's set to use the deploy user and paste in the following script, changing your app name and task name.
#!/usr/bin/env bash
set -e
export PATH="$HOME/.rbenv/shims:$PATH"
cd /home/deploy/myapp/current
bundle exec rake mytask
Then you can click Run to run your script against the server(s) you want.
