I am kind of lost with this problem.

I updated to latest version v0.9.2 with two servers. On the first one everything is fine and running. The second machine is presenting me this error with the exact same code base.

Any ideas?

There's something wrong with your project tree. Can you try:

ruby script/runner -e production 'Project.rebuild!'

Can you also give the output of the following query so I can try to reproduce:

SELECT id, parent_id, lft, rgt FROM projects

#2 Updated by Anonymous over 10 years ago

  • Status changed from New to Resolved
  • % Done changed from 0 to 100

Problem is resolved.

ruby script/runner -e production 'Project.rebuild!'
did the trick!

  • Status changed from Resolved to Closed
  • Resolution set to Fixed

#4 Updated by Kaoru Kobo over 9 years ago

I met same problem.

How about changing the instruction in RedmineUpgrade:

to following?

rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV=production 
ruby script/runner -e production 'Project.rebuild!'

I also had same symptoms. However the issue in my case was corrupted data. One project (which was manually migrated from another redmine instance using the script mentionned there: had a parent_id value set to 0.

Once identified it was quickly fixed with: UPDATE projects SET parent_id = NULL WHERE parent_id = 0;
