Hi all,

Despite switching to mod_fcgid (which has improved performance),
sessions are still expiring sporadically. I thought I might try
switching to storing them in the db, but I get the following error when
I try to run the rake create_sessions_table command

D:\User\Code\ruby\prometheus>rake create_sessions_table
(in D:/User/Code/ruby/prometheus)
rake aborted!
undefined local variable or method `acts_as_versioned' for Record:Class

I have the acts_as_versioned gem, and my whole app runs fine. If I
comment out the acts_as_versioned line in Record, another gem is not
recognized.

Any ideas.

Many thanks in advance.

Interesting. So I tried the same on my debian box, and the session table
got created okay, but then when I tried to run the app configured for
active record sessions I got the following error in my apache log:

Before you ask, yes the acts_as_versioned gem is on my debian box, and
the whole app runs just fine when I'm not trying to use activerecord
sessions.

So I guess gems are just incompatible with active record store sessions?

Hmm, curiouser and curiouser.

Actually those errors seem to have been generated by me adding another
line to the environment.rb, namely:

config.action_controller.session :prefix =>
CommunitySystem::CONFIG[:app_name]+'.'

Maybe trying to pull in the community system too early caused these
failures ...

Yes it looks likt that was the problem - still don't get my cookie's
session id prefixed though - oh well ...
