rake background task can not run

I want to use rake background task in rails like this

system("cd #{Rails.root} && RAILS_ENV=#{Rails.env} rake abc:def --
trace 2>&1 >> #{Rails.root}/log/rake.log &")

This is ok in development environment, but will not work in production
mode.

I used logger to check whether the command string is generated ok or
not, but it seems every things is fine in production evironment:

cd /home/username/rails_staging/Abc/releases/20100904034630 &&
RAILS_ENV=production rake abc:def --trace 2>&1 >> /home/username/
rails_staging/Abc/releases/20100904034630/log/rake.log &

Any body has any ideas about why this can not work in production mode?

Thanks

My first suspicion would be that you need the full path to rake....
but no promises :slight_smile:
