Here is the problem:

tony@bootsy/var/www/bandop $ ln -nfs /var/www/bandop/shared/config/database.yml /var/www/bandop/releases/20090601055013/config/database.yml
ln: creating symbolic link `/var/www/bandop/releases/20090601055013/config/database.yml': No such file or directory

I don't understand why '/var/www/bandop/releases/20090601055013/config/database.yml' has to exist. I want to create that sym link to hit the target specified above (first parameter). The command also failed to execute when logged in as root so it does not seem to be a permissions issue.

Any ideas?
