Still Using old Rails even after Upgrade

I was recently forced to upgrade to Rails 2.3.5 because of a problem
with gem.
After doing so, I'm trying to create a new site and I noticed that I am
getting warnings for depricated commands and it looks like I'm running
on my old Rails version 1.2.3?

Can anyone help me fix this so I am running on the newer version?

I am getting this message when I run script/generate:

[computer1][/work/blog]$ ./script/generate controller home index
./script/../config/boot.rb:26:Warning: Gem::SourceIndex#search support
for String patterns is deprecated, use #find_name
/usr/local/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.2.3/lib/rails_generator/lookup.rb:198:Warning:
Gem::SourceIndex#search support for Regexp patterns is deprecated, use
#find_name

Thanks

Uninstall the old version? If it's not there, it can't run!
  sudo gem remove rails -v1.2.3

You might find though that the problems are caused by using different
use accounts when you installed the gems... I've had issues like this
in the past when I've installed some components as my user, and some
as root... cue very temperamental problems!

When I try to start Webrick, it is still trying to load the old path:

./script/server
./script/../config/boot.rb:26:Warning: Gem::SourceIndex#search support
for String patterns is deprecated, use #find_name
/usr/local/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in
`gem_original_require': no such file to load --
/usr/local/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-1.2.3/lib/initializer
(LoadError)
        from
/usr/local/ruby-1.8.6/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in
`require'
        from ./script/../config/boot.rb:30
        from ./script/server:2:in `require'
        from ./script/server:2

The new libraray exists here:
/usr/local/ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/rails-2.3.5

How do I tell it to boot from this version?

thanks

Have you locked the application to the old version of Rails. Is a line like
this in config/environment.rb?

# Specifies gem version of Rails to use when vendor/rails is not present
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.3.5' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

Jack, after upgrading your Rails version, you need to update

your individual application(s) by doing the following:

a) update your environment.rb to use the new Rails version

number

b) execute - rake rails:update

Good luck,

that worked but now I'm getting

require_frameworks': no such file to load -- openssl (RuntimeError)

when I try to run Webrick.

From what I'm reading, I need to install openssl-dev but since this is a
hosting server, I don't have access to a package handler so I contacted
web support.

Do you guys recommend that I run Rails under Apache or through Webrick?

thanks

What worked? If you trim the whole previous message, no one knows what
you're replying to...

require_frameworks': no such file to load -- openssl (RuntimeError)

when I try to run Webrick.

From what I've seen of posts from people with the same problem, that
does seem to form part of the answer.

For development or live servers? For live, I'd certainly avoid
Webrick, as Apache/Passenger or NGinx is much
better/faster/easier/reliable.
Although to be honest, for development I avoid Webrick to, and use Mongrel :slight_smile:
