Setup_database error

Hi,

I’m having an installation problem with Radiant.

I’m on a shared hosting at a university.

I succesfully installed ruby-1.8.5,

since I’m on a shared and can’t write on the /usr/ direcotry I used
–prefix=/home/cybrary/source/ruby

and then set up alias ruby=/home/cybrary/source/ruby/bin.ruby on my
.bashrc

Then I installed rubygems-0.9.0 using ruby setup.rb

And set up the gem alias.

Finally I typed /gem install radiant --include dependencies, set up the
radiant alias, and typed radiant mysite

It succesfully created my new site.

This is my database.yml

I was only assigned two databases by the university ‘test’ and ‘cybrary’
but I guess this shouldn’t be a problem.

development:
host: localhost
socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
adapter: mysql
database:
username: p0pnfresh
password: xxx

test:
host: localhost
socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
adapter: mysql
database: test
username: p0pnfresh
password: xxx

production:
host: localhost
socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
adapter: mysql
database: cybrary
username: p0pnfresh
password: xxx


When I cd radiant and ruby script/setup_database test I get the
following
error:

Loading test environment…OK

^^^^^ Last line is your problem, ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid. I
think it means that the database didnt understand the command that
rails sent to it.

Could you give us some more info about your system? What version of
mysql are you running? And what ruby-mysql adapter? I think I
remember reading that one of the ruby-mysql adapters is broken, but I
only have experience with Postgresql and SQLite.

Hi,

In response to Bodhi.

Im running mysql Ver 14.7 Distrib 4.1.20, for redhat-linux-gnu (i686)
using readline 4.3.

I viewed the file
/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.14.4/lib/active_recor
d/connection_adapters/mysql_adapter.rb but I didn’t see the version.

How can I get its version?

I’ve installed Ruby 1.8.5, Gems 0.9.0, Rails 1.1.6, and Radiant 0.5.2

Jose.

Jose,

I had a similar problem a few days ago. I found out that some
connection problem with the database are due to the Ruby MySQL
bindings.

Maybe you can get an answer for your problem here:

Carlos,

Thanks for the info. I had already read that post elsewhere but It
wasn’t
so detailed as the one you sent me. I’ll be trying that out today on
Fedora 3. I have a doubt though.

What do the following lines mean?

– --with-mysql-include=/usr/include/mysql
–with-mysql-lib=/usr/lib/mysql

If they mean I’l be writing to that /usr/ directory It won’t work
because
I’m on a shared host and lack root access.

I feel like a total noob.

Jose.

Sorry for the spam. But my question would be, how can I know mysql’s
installation directory so to correctly set the gem install with mysql
prefix.

?

Jose.

    If you are on Fedora, try number 2 (1 is for Microsoft Windows).

to find out the MySQL directories, you could try (this might not work
on 4.1, I only tested on 5):

 [email protected]$ mysql_config --include --libs
 -I/usr/local/include/mysql
 -L/usr/local/lib/mysql -lmysqlclient -lz -lcrypt -lm

after -I is the path for --with-mysql-include
after -L is for --with-mysql-lib (ignore the -lmysqlclient etc)

Bodhi

I tried gem install mysql – --with-mysql-include=/usr/include/mysql
–with-mysql-lib=/usr/lib/mysql

Whis is supposed to work on Fedora 3.

Select which gem to install for your platform (i686-linux)

  1. mysql 2.7.1 (mswin32)
  2. mysql 2.7 (ruby)
  3. mysql 2.6 (ruby)
  4. mysql 2.5.1 (ruby)
  5. Cancel installation

Thenks Bohdi!

I got Radiant installed succesfully after struggling with the mysql gem.
I
followed http://www.rubyforums.com/showthread.php?t=132

Thanks!

Hi,

Now I’m having a similar problem with the mysql gem on a different
server.
When I /gem install mysql and choose 2 there is an error.

/usr/local/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/fileutils.rb:243: command not found: ruby

Could not create Makefile due to some reason, probably lack of
necessary libraries and/or headers. Check the mkmf.log file for more
details. You may need configuration options.

I know I’ve to use configuration options but feel totally lost again.

Jose : (

If I ruby extconf.rb --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config
like I did before to make it work I get

ruby extconf.rb --with-mysql-config=/usr/bin/mysql_config
checking for mysql_ssl_set()… no
checking for mysql.h… no
checking for mysql/mysql.h… no
*** extconf.rb failed ***

It looks I’m missing some files. I’ve seen the mysql.h in
/usr/local/mysql/include

but haven’t seen the mysql_ssl_set

jose.

Sorry for the spam : (

But I solved the problem. I was pointing to the wrong place to look for
the libraries.

It wasn’t /usr/bin but /usr/local/mysql/bin/

Sorry for the spam again next time I’ll wait a couple of days of
persistent errors before writing.
