Before we investigate, can you give us the output of a ruby script/about ? Did you run the migrations correctly before it occurred ?

#2 Updated by James Turnbull over 11 years ago

I ran the migration.

  • Status changed from New to Resolved

Okay - I ran the migrations one more. No dice. Ran it a third time. Now works. And schema is updated.

I have no idea why...

  • Status changed from Resolved to Closed

Weird. I'd be curious to see the console outputs if you already have it.

#5 Updated by Jean-Philippe Lang over 11 years ago

I don't think it's a database migration issue. I'm pretty sure that the app was not properly restarted.

#6 Updated by James Turnbull over 11 years ago

JPL - my sequence was:

1. Deploy new code.
2. Run migration
3. Restart unicorn and Apache.
4. Unable to create user.


1. Restart unicorn and Apache.
2. Problem still exists


1. Re-run migration.
2. Restart app.

Finally I ran the migration a third-time and it made the required changes and I restarted and it worked. The first two times it seemed like it didn't pick up the migrations?
