Silent redirect to index action when uploading images


I’m creating a simple image gallery in my rails app and have a problem
uploading images on production environment (it works perfectly on my
local machine).

I’m hosting it on dreamhost on Apache+FastCGI, with my own Ruby
compiled and Rails 2.0.1 installed in local directory plus Rick
Olson’s AttachmentFu for image uploading. I may have some image
libraries misconfigured, or something, but I cannot tell, because I
cannot see anything in the Rails log file when I click “Submit” in my

Apache access.log shows me this:

nnn.nnn.nnn.nn - - [04/Jan/2008:01:05:39 -0800] “POST /images HTTP/
1.1” 301 601[album_id]=1” “Mozilla/
(compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET
CLR 2.0.507
27; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.5.21022)”
nnn.nnn.nnn.nn - - [04/Jan/2008:01:05:41 -0800] “GET /images/ HTTP/
1.1” 200 1525[album_id]=1” “Mozilla/
0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET
CLR 2.0.50
727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.5.21022)”

Nothing appears in Apache error.log and in Rails production.log all I
can see is:

Processing ImagesController#index (for nn.nnn.nnn.nn at 2007-12-22
16:24:57) [GE
Session ID:
Parameters: {“action”=>“index”, “controller”=>“images”}

No mention of the POST request at all in the production.log. Just
the 301 redirect and since I’m not implementing index action in this
model, I get a 404 after this call.

Anyone has any ideas why the 301 redirect may occur or where I can see
anything logged?


OK, I’m responding to my own post, but… problem solved.

It appears that having a model named Image wasn’t a very good choice.
It somehow collided with .htaccess rewriting rules and apache
redirected the request. Changing model name to Picture helped.
