Script/server reference wrong version of initializer.rb

Hi All,

In my Rails app RTS, I specify:
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = ‘2.3.5’
in \RTS\config\environment.rb

I have no Windows environment variable named RAILS_GEM_VERSION

When I run ruby script/server, I get the error message:

K:/_Utilities/ruby186-26_rc2/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.2.3/
lib/initializer.rb:328:in send': undefined methodsession=’ for
ActionController::Base:Class (NoMethodError)

Why did the server script reference a rails-1.2.3 gem, rather than a
2.3.5 gem? The 1.2.3 version of initializer.rb uses metaprogramming
which likely produced the variable name “session=” which might have
been correct in the 1.2.3 context. But the 2.3.5 version of
initializer.rb should have been invoked and it looks fine on this
score.

So, what’s up?

TIA,
Richard

Have you frozen the earlier version of Rails into your app? Look in
your apps vendor folder for a folder rails. If it is there remove it.

Is it more than coincidence that the problematic version of
initializer was 1.2.3??

I am sure it is more than a coincidence. If you do
gem list
it will show you which versions you have installed. Assuming you no
longer need any except the latest versions you can do
gem cleanup
which will remove all versions except the latest. At the very least
that should change the symptom you are having.

You were right, i.e. it was more than a coincidence. I took a more
conservative approach when using your advice: I deleted that 1.2.3
thing directly from Windows Explorer. It took some doing because
something was still referencing it although I had no Ruby or Rails
stuff running. I think THAT was the real cause of my misadventure.

Bottom line: Mongrel came up and localhost:3000 brought up my app.

Thank you very much for offering your guidance.

Best wishes,
Richard

Thanks for responding to my plight.

My app is RTS. The RTS\vendor folder has no files and one empty
folder: plugins. Furthermore, I’ve never been sophisticated in
Rails to use “freeze”.

However, I’m new to the 2.0 version and tried to solve problems I had
by downloading/executing the Chapter 1 sample from Rippen’s “Pro
RoR”. It referenced ver. 1.2.3, so I downloaded/installed 1.2.3
yesterday. That led to other problems so I abandoned Rippen’s
example.

Again, thanks for looking into my problem,
Richard
