I have an infuriating problem!
Very excited about my app, working well and then I dropped it into
production (first deployment) and it continued to operate at first as
expected (I’ve learned an awful lot in the last 6 months and I was very
I’m not sure what’s changed but now my redirect statements have gone
screwy, I’ve tried and tried to fix it but without success, so I’ve now
come here for some expert advice. Various redirects are giving me “The
page you were looking for doesn’t exist”, when the local version works -
the url is the same in both environments.
For now I’ve reset the things I’ve been playing with (routes file /
environment settings, various others) back to their defaults. I figure
this is caching / paths / relative paths or my biggest suspicion the
routes file. I want to stress that my app works fine on my Mac in
development, with a vanilla routes file. I’m pretty sure I’ve deployed
I have attached a picture showing the structure of the directories, so
you can see my controllers.
An example redirect that works at home but not away would be this in my
redirect_to(:controller => ‘/owner/welcome’, :action => ‘index’)
My question is primarily, do I need to touch the routes file to get this
to work in production and if so, what edit do I make OR is it perhaps
something else I haven’t considered yet?
I’d be very grateful if someone could solve this one for me or perhaps
point me in the right direction.
