Restful_authentication errors


#1

When I run

[code] script/generate authenticated user --include-activation [/
code]

it seems to work at first, but then it reports:

" The name ‘SessionsHelper’ is either already used in your application
or reserved by Ruby on Rails. Please choose an alternative and run
this generator again "

I’ve heard that having both acts_as_authenticated and
restful_authentication installed at the same time can cause this
error, but that’s not the case with my app.

I just started a new app and installed only the restful_authentication
plugin.

Any suggestions?

Surely you’ve been able to solve the problem, but I publish a possible
solution for anyone who has the same problem. A proper way to use the
generator of restful_authentication is:

[ruby] script/generate authenticated user session —include-activation

I hope it’s useful.

Then please, forget about restful_authentication and use Authlogic.
restful_authentication is easy to set up, but puts a lot of
unmaintainable generated crap into your application.

Any suggestions?
