Help on setting up a existing project for development local

Hi,

I’m fairly new to RoR been working with it for about 3 weeks now and
starting to get to grips with the basic, (I thought).

I just recently got a job as a designer to update the aesthetics of a
ecommerce site but I would really like to expand my programming skills
as the site was developed in RoR what better framework to learn.

I purchased the Agile Web D. with rails and found it pretty
straight forward working through the examples.

So now I would like to make changes to the and get to grip with the
framework but I’m having problems setting up the ecommerce site locally
and would like a little help to point me in the right direction I’m
using instant rails on windows.

Where I’m at:-

I’ve got all the gems and pluggin’s required for the site, and I
downloaded the site files off the server including the migrates and
schema for the DB & I’ve created a development db.

I think the main problem is the database as it comes up with errors on
the rake db:migrate. I emailed the company who developed the site and
they have said “For the migration, try to keep the dump of the db on
your local machine, so u don’t need to do rake db:migrate” and this has
just confused me more.

All help and assistance is greatly appreciated

Good morning Chris,

Once you’ve got your database.yml file in your config/ directory setup
and your database has been created then you should only need to run
“rake db:schema:load” from the command line. This will load the
schema in your schema.rb file into the database. If you are receiving
errors you might want to check the version of Rails the site was
developed in as it was fairly recently that version 2.0 came out.
There were a few significant changes that occurred between versions
and this could be part of the problem. You should be able to tell
this by looking at your environment.rb file. You will want to look
for the line that say something like:

Specifies gem version of Rails to use when vendor/rails is not

present
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = ‘2.0.2’ unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

If you are still having trouble loading the schema, post the output of
rake task or better yet rerun rake db:schema:load with the --trace
flag and this will give you all kinds of debugging information.
