Can't start an old version of redmine (0.8.4)

Added by sebastián scarano about 6 years ago

I have to bring back and old version of redmine, and make it work on windows 7. I have a mysql backup but first I want to have a working installation.

I installed ruby and rake

C:\>ruby --version
ruby 1.8.7 (2011-02-18 patchlevel 334) [i386-mingw32]
C:\>gem --version
C:\>rake --version
rake, version 0.8.7

I found here an installable, uncompressed it, and tried to follow this guide

I created the db (using mysql 5.5.12) and the redmine user.

Configured it on config/database.yml

When I try to exec rake generate_session_store I get:

C:\devel\redmine-test>rake generate_session_store
(in C:/devel/redmine-test)
rake aborted!
Don't know how to build task 'generate_session_store'

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

And then when I try to create the db I get:

C:\devel\redmine-test>set RAILS_ENV=production

C:\devel\redmine-test>rake db:migrate
(in C:/devel/redmine-test)
rake aborted!
#08S01Bad handshake

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

Running with --trace effectively shows that it cannot connect to the db.

Any idea what could be wrong?

ps: running on windows 7 enterprise

Running script\about also fails misserably

C:\devel\redmine-test>setx RAILS_ENV production

C:\devel\redmine-test>ruby script\about
