Trouble with migrate over Switchtower


#1

Lately though I¹ve run into an issue
trying to run migrations over Switchtower.

So I¹ll prepare a migration and commit it to the repository. I¹ll then do a
deploy to get the latest version up on the production server. Next, I¹ll run
the following to tell the production server to run a migration:

rake remote_exec ACTION=migrate

It won’t work though, in the errors I get:

bash: line 1: rake: command not found.

I have no idea why this can¹t find the rake command. If I ssh into the
production machine and manually run that command:

cd /webserver/cbwebsite/current && rake RAILS_ENV=production migrate

, it works fine. I previously
set up my paths in both .bashrc and .bash_login. During some troubleshooting I
even added a ~/.ssh/environment file and added the PATH there ? nothing seems
to fix this.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for your help.

Where is rake located on your target machine? Note that .bashrc
and .bash_login are not read by the SSH process, and there have
been reports of ~/.ssh/environment not working, either, for some people.

However, you can set the :rake variable in your deploy.rb to specify
the full path to the rake executable on the remote host(s):

set :rake, “/opt/local/bin/rake”

Thanks. I didn’t know I could set that. Now that I have it works as
expected. Thanks.
