I have a rails 3.rc app that I’m developing. I have a text entry in one
my models that can sometimes be quite big. I tried setting :limit =>
4294967296 on the text column in my migration file but this doesn’t seem
to have any effect. The column is till created as a TEXT column rather
than MEDIUMTEXT or LONGTEXT.
Does anyone have any idea why this might be happening? Is there a better
way of ensuring that
an entry won’t default to TEXT in a mysql database?
