Server is broken!

The mongrel server has mysteriously stopped working on one of my rails
projects.

Here’s what the console says:

$ script/server => Booting Mongrel (use ‘script/server webrick’ to
force WEBrick)
=> Rails 2.1.0 application starting on http://0.0.0.0:3000
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
** Starting Mongrel listening at 0.0.0.0:3000
** Starting Rails with development environment…

I’m stumped, any ideas?

Thanks!

Seems to me you have either missing plugins or plugin incompatibility.

Thanks for your suggestion, how can I check this and fix it?

Remove acts_as_cached from the plugins folder (since the stack trace
points to that plugin if you read carefully) and try to start the
server again. If the error doesn’t occur, you have the choice of
trying to make that plugin work with your Rails version by patching it
or searching for an alternative.

BTW, if you’re using Rails 2.1, I believe that plugin is totally
unnecessary, since Rails has memcached support built-in. Search google
for more info on Rails 2.1 caching.

Yeah,
it may also be better, if you’re following the RailsSpace tutorials,
to use the same version of Rails that they were using.

Try sudo gem install rails --version=2.0.2 or something

think that should be similar enough…
then go into config/environment.rb
find the bit that talks about rails version,
and change it to “2.0.2”
or however its phrased.
