I wonder if I'm reading the various tutorials (and Agile book, version 2) incorrectly... I make an app, and then edit e.g. by adding a new column to migrate/002_stuff.db and then run rake migrate rake db:structure:dump && cat db/development_structure.sql but I see no change in the database. However, the database *is* updated if I do rake migrate VERSION=0 rake migrate But isn't one supposed just to edit the migrate/*.rb files and do rake migrate ?

If you are already at version 2 and you run rake migrate after editing 002_stuff.rb nothing new will happen. When you run rake migrate VERSION=0 then you are resetting things so 002_stuff.rb is a newer file(2) than your db state(0). Matt M. blog.mattmargolis.net
