mod_rails We're sorry, but something went wrong. message

After running rails by exec'ing script/server I installed mod_rails/Phusion to run rails through apache.

I was getting this message

"We're sorry, but something went wrong. message"

Not a lot of help, and I was uanble to find much in the logs and user manuals either.


1) By default, mod_rails runs your app in production mode. When you're running rails through script/server it is in development mode.

2) You can either run rake db:migrate RAILS_ENV="production" which will build the production database from the values in database.yml

3) Or if you want to keep on using the dev database add this line to your apache virtual host

RailsEnv development
