Site works perfectly if I am logged in, but 404 for everyone else

Added by Lawrence Krubner about 8 years ago

Nevermind. Ignore this question. I only needed to update the mongrel.rb patch.

I was asked to upgrade our Redmine from 1.1 to 1.3.3. I was given a dev server that was an image of the work production server. The server is running mongrel, which we start like this:

/usr/local/bin/mongrel_rails start -d -c /redmine/ -l /redmine/log/production.log -a 10.0.1.140 -p 80 --user redmine --group redmine -e production

I was able to upgrade everything. I may have logged in before the upgrade. Either way, for me, the site works perfectly. But for everyone else the site is a 404 error. And, in fact, if I start a new browser (say, Safari), on my own machine, and go to the site, I also get a 404 error.

Also very strange: I restarted mongrel, but in the one browser where I was logged in, I remained logged in and was able to click to other pages. I would have assumed that the session was lost when the app restarted, but no.

But in the 1 browser where I am logged in, everything works perfect. And the site is 404 for everyone else.

Any suggestions?

The logs have this error:

I see this might be related:

But I already have the mongrel.rb patch installed, and the site does not function.

Nevermind. Ignore this question. I only needed to update the mongrel.rb patch.
