Problem with restful_authentication

Hi,

(newbie here)

I'm having a problem with the restful_authentication plugin.

I reloaded the restful_authentication today, but I'm not sure how to
check the version number.

Ruby version 1.8.6 (powerpc-darwin8.9.0)
RubyGems version 0.9.2
Rails version 1.2.3
Active Record version 1.15.3
Action Pack version 1.13.3
Action Mailer version 1.3.3
Active Support version 1.4.2
Edge Rails revision 7216
Environment development
Database adapter mysql
Database schema version 1

You might have to get an older version of restful_authentication as the newest only works with edge Rails AFAIK. If you run the test suite it should show lots of errors if you're on an incompatible version.

Try downgrading to r2563 and see if it helps.

Hi Jacob,

Thanks for replying.

I'm not sure how to download an older version of the plugin (I didn't see anything after running and reading this: script/plugin --help).

Since I'm over my head with using edge rails, I'll probably try acts_as_authenticated instead. Thanks!

PS -

Here's what I tried:

# test 1

cd ~/Programming/ruby/rails/
\rm -rf restfulauthentication/*
rails restfulauthentication
cd restfulauthentication/
rake rails:freeze:edge REVISION=2563
script/plugin install restful_authentication
#ERROR
#script/plugin:3:in 'require': no such file to load -- commands/plugin (LoadError)
# from script/plugin:3

# test 2

cd ~/Programming/ruby/rails/
\rm -rf restfulauthentication/*
rails restfulauthentication
cd restfulauthentication/
script/plugin install restful_authentication
rake rails:freeze:edge REVISION=2563
# update config/database.yml
# mysql -u MYUSERNAME -p -e "create database restfulauthentication_development"
#!
rake db:migrate
#ERROR

rake migrate
#ERROR

#undefined method `cache_template_extensions=' for ActionView::Base:Class

# test 3

cd ~/Programming/ruby/rails/
\rm -rf restfulauthentication/*
rails restfulauthentication
cd restfulauthentication/
script/plugin install restful_authentication
./script/generate authenticated user sessions --include-activation
# update config/database.yml
rake db:migrate
rake rails:freeze:edge REVISION=2563
script/server
#ERROR
#./script/../config/../vendor/rails/railties/lib/initializer.rb:159:in `send': undefined method `cache_template_extensions=' for ActionView::Base:Class (NoMethodError)

Oh no, I'm not saying you should freeze Rails to revision 2563, it was the plugin I was talking about. With plain svn that would be:

cd [into/rails-root]

svn export -r 2563 http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/restful_authentication/ vendor/plugins/restful_authentication

This version of the plugin should work with Rails 1.2.3.

You'll have to look in the logs and see why it's sending you from /new
to #index. Check your routes too. The readme should help you out.
Any edge rails issues are just limited to tests, they don't affect the
actual plugin. All you'd have to do is add assert_difference methods
and tests should pass.

I think you're just unfamiliar with the restful routing stuff and
should probably stick with acts_as_authenticated until you're more
comfortable with it. If you look at the form, it should be posting to
/users, which should invoke the create action, not index. If
something is redirecting you, you have some other underlying problem.
I've seen this happen with faulty apache configs changing POST /users
to GET /users/, for example.
