Rails 1.1 to 1.2 upgrade question - is it recommended to upg

Just a general question re upgrading an application to a new version of

Q1 - Is it recommended to upgrade the various rails files to the latest
version (e.g. the scripts, configuration files etc)

Q2 - If yes, what’s the easiest approach? Create a new project and then
copy your specific rails files across, but then for config files
copy/paste your changes out of the old to the new? Ummmm…but how then
align your new development area with your SVN repository?


  1. Yes

  2. rake update[:configs, :javascripts, :scripts]

If you have lots of special configuration, you’ll probably want to back
up and copy over to the new file, but from 1.1 to 1.2 it’s not that much
a change.
