Dreamhosters beware: 1.1 migration ruckus

This will probably demolish your Typo-based weblog and cause some
other glitches. Read the comments and some workarounds here:

I have to say that it’s a pretty good idea to run with your own
version of Rails if you are on a shared host ? any shared host. This
would be one really good reason. I have two sites on DH and they both
have been on Edge Rails for months and didn’t blink with this change.

Here’s how I set up Typo on Edge Rails:

Here’s how to fix it and use one copy of the gems and symlink it to
multiple apps:

There is actually a svn branch of typo on that seems to work for rails
1.1.
I have tested it on my local machine and it seems to work ok. Going to
test it a little more before installing it on my main server but I am
yet to find a bug.

Just remember to backup the old installation and do a mysqldump of the
database before installing. Also don’t forget the rake migrate command
as there is a few database changes.

I’ve got a workaround recipe on my blog. The one I posted on the DH blog
doesn’t really work (I was too eager to post it to make sure it was
really working), but their spam protection won’t let me post there
again. Updated recipe here:

It’s working for my blog now.
