same code different databases?


We want to serve multiple clients using the same logic but having a separate database for each client. We are using capistrano to deploy our web application. Anybody has any idea how we could do this? Thanks!

I'm using a different subdomain for each tenant, so could we choose the database in rails depending on the subdomain?

you could try calling ActiveRecord::Base.establish_connection from a
before_filter. Re-establishing connections like that every request
might be horribly slow.



I followed this great guide at .

This guide works perfectly for one model. But I think if I were to use it for another one, I would have to duplicate the code for each model... For my subdomain problem, the way I think it should be done is have a global function which will run for all objects, look at the subdomain and set the connection but I'm not sure where to put what piece of code to achieve this.

Also, when I applied the guide ( magic_multi_connections) to an existing application (http:// -> it is a guide to create a blog) it would work perfectly but only if I comment these lines out:

            #link_to 'Show', post             #link_to 'Edit', edit_post_path(post)             #link_to 'Destroy', post, :confirm => 'Are you sure?', :method => :delete

otherwise, if the connection is other than default and the 1st or 3rd line is present I get a this:

undefined method `private_testing_post_path' for #<ActionView::Base: 0x6b08550>

I used the name "Module PrivateTesting" instead of "Module Private"...

I'm pretty sure there is an obvious fix for my problem (either the subdomain or the one with the errors I'm getting and maybe I will be able to figure it out from there) but I'm new to Rails and I've spent many hours trying to get this to work without any success. Any help would be really really appreciated. Thank you!
