Help in upgrading from 1.1.6 to 1.2.3

Hi, I was developing a rails app with version 1.1.6 that just worked
fine.

I decided to upgrade to 1.2.3 and then, I keep getting that horrible
message:

"Application error
Change this error message for exceptions thrown outside of an action
(like in Dispatcher setups or broken Ruby code) in public/500.html"

Now, before starting script/server I modiffied config/environment.rb
and changed the value of RAILS_GEM_VERSION from 1.1.6 to 1.2.3

It did not work, so I run 'rake rails:update' and, again, the same
mistake

Any ideas about what could be wrong?

The funny thing is that if I change back the value of
RAILS_GEM_VERSION to 1.1.6, everything works fine again.

What's the webserver's error_log say?

(Parallel question - what does script/server give?)

Hi Philip

The log/development.log says:

Now, jiro_controller.rb is like my index, it is the main page of the
application. It holds the links to the others controllers.

Thanks for your answer Matthew

See on my laptop I have version 1.1.6 for wich the code I have been
writing work. In my laptop I have installed version 1.2.3 and in my
desktop computer, I have installed only the latest versions of
everything (rake 0.7.3, rails 1.2.3 and so on)

After modifying config/environment.rb and set RAILS_GEM_VERSION =
'1.2.3' in both computers I got the same error.

Now, I did the script/console and got:

addicttux@suse64:~/Desarrollos/jiro> script/console

Now, I have no idea about this wire thing, in 1.1.6 works and in 1.2.3
does not.

Today I will start simulating the creation from 0, I mean, 'rails
jiro' and start adding file by file, constantly testing, to see what
is making this wire behavior.

Mean while, any suggestions are more than welcome.
