Mongrel problem during redmine upgrade to 0.9.2
I have started using redmine since 0.8.3 and have updated it from 0.8.x branch periodically and lastly used 0.8.7.
Today I checked out from svn 0.9.x branch the 0.9.2 version and upgraded the system by using the docs in
Once I started mongrel in the end, it however refused to start due to following error: in logs/mongrel.log
/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activesupport-2.3.5/lib/active_support/dependencies.rb:440:in `load_missing_constant': uninitialized constant ActionController::AbstractRequest (NameError)

To get it working, I needed to add file redmine/config/initializers/mongrel_cluster_with_rails_23_fix.rb
with following content
class AbstractRequest < ActionController::Request
Maybe it would be good idea to include this file by default in redmine 0.9.x branch?
I had similar problem, but the above solution didn't worked.
So I researched a little bit and found the problem in the way I have upgraded my Redmine!
(copy old, extract new files over old files).
Unfortunately some files were just deprecated and remained in the directory
Remove it and it is working.
I had the same issue when upgrading my bitnami installation (on Windows Server 2003) with the trunk version.
From what I understood, the bitnami installation was modified and you have
to follow the instructions given here : http://bitnami.org/article/how-to-backup-and-update-the-bitnami-redmine-stack
To sum up, you have to copy the following folder (with sub-folder) to your new install :
Also, update your env variables with the content of scripts/setenv.bat : it will let
you use imageMagick, ruby, rake and stuff from the command line without warning (missing
magick core dll...).

Un-sticking this, mongrel is unmaintained, there are better alternatives (that even work with ruby > 1.9.2)
