I want to run my Rails 1.2 site in Rails 2.1


#1

Hi there, good people.

I have a coworker who have a Rails 1.2 website (1.2.2 to be exact) and
recently I installed in her workstation Rails 2.1. Obviously, her
project doesn’t work in that version because the WEBrick ask to
install the previous version.

My question: Is there a way where these versions can coexist without
making any conflict? Is there any solution? If not, how can I upgrade
that project to 2.1 without any hiccups or major changes on the source
code? Is there any tutorials where I can do this job? It’s very
important because she needs to see it running again.

Thanks in advance.

Juan “The N.” Escajadillo.

In a nutshell you’ve got two choices: either you freeze rails into the
app (using the appropriately named rake tasks), which gives the app
its own copy of rails in your_app/vendor/rails or you fiddle
RAILS_GEM_VERSION in environment.rb

On another computer, install a higher Rails version, such as 1.4, change
the
RAILS_GEM_VERSION in environment.rb, and run rake rails:update.

Then run all your tests (you do have tests, right?), and commit your
code if
they pass.

Then repeat for, say Rails 1.6. Keep walking the version up.

At any time, if the tests fail, rock back to the previous baselined
version, and
then make whatever changes are needed so the tests would pass in the
higher
version. Then integrate (meaning pass all tests), and then try the next
version
again.

You can keep going like that until you hit 2.1.

Oh, and certain plugins will die, as their authors abandoned them. You
can cover
that by removing the plugins and commenting-out whatever features they
provided.
Then rebuild them.

Everything goes fine change the versión in environment.rb and updating
with “rake rails:update”. But when I hit the “rake test”, this was
what the console spawned:

Sorry, I’m kind of new to Rails. Any ideas of what’s next?

Sorry! I put back the subject to its original name to avoid confusion
and post you answers.

Here I went again on “rake test”. These were the results:

The results were a bit different because of the Scaffolding Extensions
plugin I installed on her project. Now it’s asking me to install the
MySQL gem. I found version 2.7 of it. According to various manuals,
the installation is as follows:
gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql (where /usr/
local is the location of MySQL)

Surely this will work, but one last question. How can I make dissapear
the config.breakpoint_server deprecation?

I’ll post anynews here if this worked or not.

Greetings.

Remove it from development.rb

Dynamic scaffolding was removed from rails 2. It was then extracted
