Issues with Capistrano Deployment and or SymLinks

edited March 2010 in Vanilla 2.0 - 2.8
I have found that I get errors when deploying my Vanilla 2 set-up and theme to my webserver using capistrano. Capistrano ( ) uses a symlink called "current" to point to a release folder which is timestamped and might look something like "20100308042106". After I have more then 5 release folders, I have capistrano clean out the oldest one as to not keep too many versions on my server.

What I am finding is that somewhere along the way Garden/Vanilla stores the absolute url of my release folder as a point of reference and not the symlink "current" folder. This causes me to get failed to open stream errors, because it is looking in a release folder that no longer exists. An example of this is this error:

include_once(/home/deploy/public_html/ [function.include-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory

I can't really tell where this release folder is being stored within the application, as I would like it to point to the "current/" folder rather then the actual release - or I can move it to a "shared" folder potentially to avoid this issue. Subsequently, I also get this error, from what I can only assume is an instantiated class from a previous release version...

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare class Gdn_Controller in /home/deploy/public_html/ on line 1127
