Rails 3.0 Invalid Date Error in Production

I’m using Authlogic with Rails 3.0 and I’m having an issue where my
users
can’t login. I have a customer model and a user model and in production
my
customer login works, but my user login doesn’t (in development both
work
fine). Someone please help, users generally frown upon not being able to
login.

What happens is that when user_sessions tries to save it fails.
Specifically, my Heroku logs say:

Started POST “user_sessions”
POST myapp.com/user_sessions
ArgumentError (invalid date)
config/initializers/american_date_monkey_patch.rb:11:in ‘to_date’
config/initializers/american_date_monkey_patch.rb:17:in
‘fallback_string_to_date’
app/controllers/user_sessions_controller.rb:in ‘create’

american_date_monkey_patch.rb

if RUBY_VERSION >= ‘1.9’
class String
def to_date
if self.blank?
nil
elsif self =~ /(\d{1,2})/(\d{1,2})/(\d{4})/
::Date.civil($3.to_i, $1.to_i, $2.to_i)
else
::Date.new(*::Date._parse(self, false).values_at(:year, :mon,
:mday))
end
end
end

class ActiveRecord::ConnectionAdapters::Column
def self.fallback_string_to_date(string)
string.to_date
end
end
end

user_sessions model

class UserSession < Authlogic::Session::Base
def to_key
new_record? ? nil : [ self.send(self.class.primary_key) ]
end

def persisted?
false
end
end

customer_sessions model (same as above with a different class name)

class CustomerSession < Authlogic::Session::Base
def to_key
new_record? ? nil : [ self.send(self.class.primary_key) ]
end

def persisted?
false
end
end

user_sessions controller

class UserSessionsController < ApplicationController
before_filter :require_no_user, :only => [:new, :create]
before_filter :require_user, :only => :destroy

def new
@user_session = UserSession.new
end

def create
@user_session = UserSession.new(params[:user_session])
if @user_session.save
flash[:notice] = “Login successful!”
redirect_back_or_default community_path
else
render :action => :new
end
end

def destroy
current_user_session.destroy
flash[:notice] = “Logout user successful!”
redirect_back_or_default community_path
end
end

Customer Sessions controller (similar but not identical)

class CustomerSessionsController < ApplicationController

def new
@customer_session = CustomerSession.new
end

def create
@customer_session = CustomerSession.new(params[:customer_session])
if @customer_session.save
flash[:notice] = “Login successful!”
redirect_back_or_default admins_path
else
render :action => :new
end
end

def destroy
current_customer_session.destroy
flash[:notice] = “Logout customer successful!”
redirect_back_or_default admins_path
end
end

When you say it works in development mode is that in the same
environment or are you comparing development on one system with
production on another?

app/controllers/user_sessions_controller.rb:in ‘create’

american_date_monkey_patch.rb

if RUBY_VERSION >= ‘1.9’

Are you sure you are using the same version of ruby in production and
development? If not then the difference may be whether this code is
getting invoked.

class String
def to_date
if self.blank?
nil
elsif self =~ /(\d{1,2})/(\d{1,2})/(\d{4})/
::Date.civil($3.to_i, $1.to_i, $2.to_i)
else
::Date.new(*::Date._parse(self, false).values_at(:year, :mon,
:mday))

One of the two lines above is failing (not sure which as not sure
which as line 11 (from the error) does not seem to match either of
them exactly. If you still can’t work out what is going on then put
some debug in to work it out. See the Rails Guide on debugging for
clues on how to do that.

They’re using different environments - development is on my PC,
production
is on Heroku.

Sorry, if you are on Windows I can’t help. Most Rails developers use
Linux (I use Ubuntu) or Mac. You will have to hope someone here who
uses Windows can help, or alternatively (which would be my suggestion)
set up your machine to dual boot Win and Ubuntu, or run Ubuntu in a
virtual machine using VirtualBox or VMWare.

There is however the question of why you are using
american_date_monkey_patch (which I know nothing about) since it seems
to be that that is causing the problem.

Hi Colin,
To be honest, this is the first time I developed something - I only
started
learning because my developer left me. I did some research and it seems
like the purpose is to parse the date fields considering it is entered
in
an American format (and then saving to the database). However, I dug
around and found this gem
https://github.com/jeremyevans/ruby-american_date which
I could probably use instead.

Colin

Hi Colin, I think you’re right. I’m running 1.8.7 locally, but my
Heroku
stack is 1.9.2.

So my next newbie questions is how do I get my current local app to use
the
1.9.2 that I installed (downloaded from http://rubyinstaller.org)? Is
there some place to map my development environment to the new 1.9.2
install? After I installed Ruby, I went into the command prompt to run
rails s, and I got this message, "report_activate_error: Could not find
RubyGem rails <>=0

I tried searching, but couldn’t find anything except this:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/2741180/how-do-i-upgrade-from-ruby-1-8-6-to-1-8-7-on-windows

and the extent of it is download Ruby 1.9.2 and install.

Thank you
