Though I’ve read all I could about the “Lost connection to MySQL
server during query: SHOW FIELDS FROM …”, I’m still unable to use RoR.
I’m on Linux Mandriva 2006 / MySQL-4.1.12 / ruby-1.8.2
The userid/password have access to the database and the table (it’s
the root user on MySQL)
I’m on a nonstandard socket/port, but I’ve set the socket in
The table exists, the name is all lowercase and plural (“recipes”)
The table has a primary key called ‘id’ (int, autoincrement)
I don’t have the “old passwords” in my MySQL setup
The Application Trace, Framework Trace, Full Trace, session dump
don’t show anything useful
The MySQL log shows nothing either. Nor syslog.
How on earth can I find out exactly what is going on ?
Is there some place where RoR dumps exactly what it is trying to do
and what error status it receives ?
Thanks for any help
