How do you verify that upgrading rails worked?

Quick question -
I was running 1.1.2, and I just did Gem Update Rails. I should now be
at 1.1.6. In all of my applications, do I just need to change the
environment.rb to say

RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.1.6'
instead of
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.1.2'

Or is there anything else I need to do? And how do I verify that it is
now running 1.1.6?

Thanks,
Ben Lisbakken

Hi Ben,

Or is there anything else I need to do? And how do I verify that it is
now running 1.1.6?

From the command line, run the "about" script, which you'll find in the "script" directory of your Rails project directory:

~/Workarea $ ./script/about
About your application's environment
Ruby version 1.8.4 (powerpc-darwin8.6.0)
RubyGems version 0.8.11
Rails version 1.1.6
Active Record version 1.14.4
Action Pack version 1.12.5
Action Web Service version 1.1.6
Action Mailer version 1.2.5
Active Support version 1.3.1
Application root /blegga/blegga/blegga
Environment development
Database adapter mysql
~/Workarea $ _

The "about" script is "clever" enough to detect a misconfigured "environment.rb", e.g. when setting RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '1.1.7' the output is as follows:

~/Workarea $ ./script/about
Cannot find gem for Rails =1.1.7:
     Install the missing gem with 'gem install -v=1.1.7 rails', or
     change environment.rb to define RAILS_GEM_VERSION with your desired version.

~/Workarea $ _

Hope this helps,

PS - You can also get the above version information from a running Rails application by clicking on the Ajax-empowered "About your application's environment" link on the standard Rails index.html page... the page fragments that pops up will also confirm which version of Rails you are effectively running.
