I have a rails app which uses email as login name. At some point, I
have to search the user, in the User model by email. For some reason,
the method User.find_by_email(email) returns nil, even though the user
is in the database.
The same applies for any find_by_* method that searches by any
database column. I was able to find the user using the User.find
Does anyone have an idea of what might be going on?
