Hello , I am a ROR beginner. I have a controller named "users" and the corresponding view,model created using the command "ruby script/generate scaffold user name:string".By running the command rake db:migrate will create the table "users" with a field "name" and the migration file created automatically is "001_create_users.rb". Now when I tried to add one more column "password" ,by creating a new migration file using the command "ruby script/generate migration create_users" an error is occuring like "Another file named 001_create_users.rb already exists". May any one let me know what is the problem? I am using the right way or not? Thanks in advance Indu

Once a migration is created with the scaffold command it cannot be altered with the scaffold command. Only manually. However, once a migration file has been used by running rake db:migrate, you are not recommended to alter this file in a real production site, but rather you must make a new migration file, but not using scaffold: script/generate migration AddPasswordColumn This command would create a new migration file where you can add/alter/ delete database columns and schema. However, if you are testing and want to redo your first scaffold command: rake db:migrate VERSION=0 And now edit the file and rerun: rake db:migrate Hank

Hi Indu Did u start the project? After running script/generate migration AddPasswordColumn you can do like In self.up add_column :users,:password, :string and may write in self.down (only if needed) remove_column :users, :password Then as usual rake db:migrate Sijo

Hi Suppose there is a User model So in the view you have <%= password_field 'user', 'password' %></p> Now write in User model before_create :protect_password def protect_password self.password = Digest::MD5.hexdigest(self.password) end There may be also other ways for doing this Sijo

I tried this one and can save the encrypted password.
