RAILS_ROOT is not a directory error

Hi all,

Im attempting to deploy a third party rails application at the moment
and im coming up against the following error:

RAILS_ROOT is not a directory

This is used in boot.rb in the following lines:

unless defined?(RAILS_ROOT)
root_path = File.join(File.dirname(FILE), ‘…’)

unless RUBY_PLATFORM =~ /mswin32/
require ‘pathname’
root_path = Pathname.new(root_path).cleanpath(true).to_s
end

end

I’ve tried changing permissions and ownership for the directory in
question but it doesnt seem to help my cause.

Any ideas on how this might be solved?

Cheers,
Chris

end

RAILS_ROOT is not a directory. It’s a string. Which line is throwing
the
error?

Best regards,
Bill

Hi Bill,

its not a directory but isnt it a line referencing a directory?

the full error can be seen here:

It’s a string that could be a path. I’d use logger to see exactly
what it
is when the error is thrown. OTOH… IIRC, I didn’t see anything in the
code that would throw the error you said was being thrown.

I see no such file to load… config/environment.

I ran into this same issue ‘RAILS_ROOT is not a directory error’ and
it turned out to be a permission issue on files in my config folder.

Thanks.
