Just sharing a Rail 2.3.2 upgrade experience. My app was running on
2.1.1 before I upgraded.
Most things worked but I could not get my default route in routes.rb
to work. The default route URL was “/”. I had a route like this in
routes.rb as the very last route:
map.connect “”, :controller => “foo”, :action => “bar”
So users who went to the base URL would be directed to the foo
This stopped working with Rails 2.3.2 and I wasted half a day figuring
out what was wrong. Turns out, I just needed to delete public/
index.html. That’s it. The same route works perfectly after deleting
There is a comment in the Rails code which mentions this but I don’t
see it in the documentation for Rails routes.
