Just sharing an experience with you all – hopefully you take better
precautions than I do.
I have a few sites built with Rails 0.8.3 that were ugpraded to 1.0.
The newer sites are on edge rails. So when I heard 1.1 had come out,
I unfroze my new apps, and installed the new gem for Rails 1.1.
The sites that was operating on edge rails worked just fine.
However, the sites that were working fine on 1.0 suddenly broke, and
started spewing FCGI errors. Of course, I’m lazy and I didn’t check
them right away. Serves me right.
So I woke up this morning to find that my apache has died. FCGI
errors from apache filled all the logs as my sites were spidered by
For some reason I was under the mistaken impression that 1.0 -> 1.1
should not have been a problem.
