Hi, I have Ruby 1.8.4 and have my MyISAM db and tables created via the migration files to utf8. A check with MySQL Front shows that all the tables and the db have been correctly created as I wanted them. I want the site to be in UTF8 format, and added the bit to application_controller.rb to get the correct header. All still worked fine at this stage. But I run into trouble when adding: encoding: utf8 to my otherwise untouched database.yaml. I had just committed a working version of the site to subversion before editing database.yaml and after the database.yaml the the next command I ran, ruby script/generate model job_client_type, came up with an error: C:/ruby/lib/ruby/1.8/yaml:133:in 'load': syntax error on line 13, 10: 'adapter: mysql' (ArgumentError) [Many other errors on initializer.rb, custom_require.rb etc - I can list all if it helps] Ends with [...]active_support/dependencies.rb:147: in 'require' from script/generate: 3 Tried figuring out the problem for hours but can't. Only a termination of Webrick, deletion of the site and re-export from subversion with the original database.yaml fixes everything again (i.e. the model command runs). Merely taking out the offending line from database.yaml to effectively reverse the change does *not* do the trick even though it should - fresh export only, which is weird. Any ideas?

BTW, if it helps, I was following the instructions on http://ruphus.com/blog/2005/06/23/getting-unicode-...

Do you have some stray tabs in the file? ~ Ben

As soon as you mentioned this, I was very positive you had cracked it as ArachnoRuby is a bit too tab-happy... I changed the file in Wordpad, and it seems this was fine. Tabs were the culprit... or rather my stupidity for the oversight. A tab instead of two spaces kills everything - script/generate, script/server etc. Would be nice for it not to be so temperamental in a future release, but thanks a million Ben.
