Database passwords with numbers


#1

I have database password in my database.yml as “passw0rd” however when I
go to http://localhost:3000/rails/info/properties I get this error:

private method `gsub’ called for 1:Fixnum

But if I just use “password” for my password everything is ok.

Any ideas?

What database are you using? I’ve used a similar password for both
Oracle and MySQL, and not had that problem.

I got the same thing. For me, it looks like it happens when it tries to
escape
the HTML. I duplicated the same error message by calling gsub on a int.
My guess
is there’s an integer in the request data somewhere?

My Error log:

C:/InstantRails/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/cgi.rb:362:in `escapeHTML_fail_on_nil’

(Ok, it won’t let me post the rest cause it’s too long) Dumb.
