Migrations question: force initial version?

Hi Al,

As you already found, the base level of your database structure is
found in schema.rb.
but db:migrate will not help you in this case, although you created a
new member since it compares the migration number (aka schema version)
to the number found in the schema_info table (version column) in your
working db.

try copying the schema.rb file into your new project and issue the
db:schema:load command.

hope this helps.
