I am one of the foolhardy people who hijacks the connection on each request. I have followed the tutorial on multiple databases to the letter, and I first verified that acts_as_ferret works with the find_by_ferret method. I am not runnning drb yet, this is in development mode on my Mac. Instead of using a domain hash, I am using an account number. I have modified all of the scripts accordingly. While find_by_ferret, before the account_hash modifications to my models did indeed return results, I get no results after the modification. I assume this is because there isn't an index yet which knows about the account_hash. Now there is a script at the bottom of the tutorial on the project site at http://projects.jkraemer.net/acts_as_ferret/wiki/M.... There is a statement to the effect that says "Here is my script". Unfortunately I cannot figure out what to do with that script. Where to put it. How to run it. Etc. Is it a rake task? Is it just an rb file? What libraries do I require in order to get it to run? Do I have to run it regularly? If so, should I schedule it? How? I don't expect anyone to hold my hand all the way, really I just want to run the script. I tried a regular ruby file, and rake task, and both have met with failure because I don't know what files to require. Please, please help, as I have already burned 8 hours trying to implement AAF against multiple dbs with no progress today. It is going to be awesome when I get it working though.
