Is using script/console in live production environment ok?

I need to make some minor record changes in the database on my live
production site. I use Capistrano to deploy. I know I can activate
script/console by entering my "/current" Capistrano directory and
running:

RAILS_ENV=production script/console

Are there any dangers or pitfalls to be aware of when using script/
console to make record changes to a live site in a production
environment?

No, it's fine - just obviously be careful of what you're doing.

Cheers,

Andy

And of course, if you need to do it more than once in a blue moon,
something is obviously wrong.

If you are using SQLite make sure you run under same UID as passenger/
fastcgi/mongrel/etc
