Can't migrate schema

Hello all,
I’m a Ruby noobie, so please bear with me. I’ve recently switched to
Ubuntu and have installed ruby using the package manager. I then
installed gem, and used it to install rails and its dependencies.

I ran the rails command to create a website. I used the generator to
create a migration task and tried to run it with the following command.

rake migrate --trace

This produced the following trace:

(in /home/wgant/user/ruby/HoshinWeb)
** Invoke migrate (first_time)
** Invoke db:migrate (first_time)
** Invoke environment (first_time)
** Execute environment

I’ve set up my database correctly in the database.yml file using the
same username and database name I use to connect with MySQL
Administrator. The database is currently empty (no schema table or
anything). Is this the problem or am I missing something else?

Thanks,
Will

Did you configure a database server in config/database.yml?

Yes. I have the following listed in my config file

development:
adapter: mysql
database: MyWeb_dev
username: root
password: password
host: localhost

Any thoughts? This is the same info I use to connect to the database
currently.

Is there something special I need to do to the database to get it ready
for migrations? I noticed that it is using a table to store the schema
version. Such a table does not exist in my database.

Get your email and more, right on the new Yahoo.com

Yep. I can connect that way. However, now when I try to run
rake migrate
I get the following message
No such file or directory - /tmp/mysql.sock

This leads me to believe that something is configured incorrectly. Any
thoughts?

Does /tmp/mysqlsock exist? Are you on Macintosh? Linux? Windows?

where is my.cnf?

When you connect from command line, do you specify a port # ? i.e. 3306

I’m on Ubuntu Linux and the file does not exist. I don’t specify a port
or anything when I connect on the command line. Do you think I should
re-install MySQL to see if that helps?

Yahoo! Messenger with Voice. Make PC-to-Phone Calls to the US (and 30+
countries) for 2¢/min or less.

Include that in your database.yml file…

socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

Craig

The socket file being used when I connect via SQL Admin is
/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

Is there a config file somewhere for ruby where this information could
be stored incorrectly?

Do you Yahoo!?
Get on board. You’re invited to try the new Yahoo! Mail.

Close…
Now it’s giving me the following error again:

Everyone is raving about the all-new Yahoo! Mail.

Could the new problem be related to this?

All-new Yahoo! Mail - Fire up a more powerful email and get things done
faster.

Why - are you editing environment.rb?

Craig

Apparently I overlooked that one. It’s giving me the following options.
Which do I take?

  1. mysql 2.7.1 (mswin32)
  2. mysql 2.7 (ruby)
  3. mysql 2.6 (ruby)
  4. mysql 2.5.1 (ruby)
  5. Cancel installation

I would think #2, but I wanted to check before I did anything. I’m
running MySQL 5.0.

2 sounds like the winner

Craig

did you ‘gem install mysql’ ? (as root or via sudo?)

Craig

I tried this:
sudo gem install mysql --include-dependencies

and got the following:

Building native extensions. This could take a while…

from extconf.rb:1

On Fedora Core I’ve never had any luck using gem to install the Ruby
MySql plugin. But it always works when I use yum (Fedora package
manger). I suggest you track down the Ruby MySql package for your
system and install it that way.

Aaron

Hi, I also have the same problem as you. Do you mind telling me how you
fix it? I tried the gem install mysql but it doesn’t work.

Thanks,
Erwin

That fixed it. What a day!

Thanks to everyone for helping and putting up with me. I appreciate it.
