Mongrel < 1.2 + Rails 2.3.11 require monkey patch, see RedmineInstall.

I tried the patch from mongrel.rb file, I still had the same problem. Is the patch_for_mongrel.rb file different?

Mongrel 1.2.0 is already out?

#3 Updated by Tom Rochette over 9 years ago

I had this same error a while ago, fixed it by using some of the stuff on Might be helpful to you.

#4 Updated by Cassiano Monteiro over 9 years ago

It´s basically the same as the one from, just with more versions on the top.

But it´s completely different from mongrel.rb that I have installed from version 1.1.5 here. How should I apply the patch? Add all the content from the patch file to the one I have? Or just overwrite it?

#5 Updated by Alfredo Bonilla over 9 years ago

Hi, you have to place the mongrel.rb file in your redmine/config/initializers. We had a problem with the gems. We didn't install mongrel and mongrel_cluster gems. If you look at the patch code, the first IF sentence is searching for the version of the mongrel gem... so, once installed, everything works perfectly.
