update and update_attribute woes

i can not get update to work via controller/server.

it works via console ???

this is what i get when i run it

  Club Load (0.005893) SELECT * FROM clubs WHERE (clubs."id" = 3)
  SQL (0.000570) BEGIN
  SQL (0.000454) COMMIT

    club.update_attributes(:state => "CA")

    Club.update(3, :state => "CA")

what am i overlooking?

Although you neither show nor mention any errors from your log, consider these two points. First, AR::Base#update_attributes returns false if the save fails any validations; check its return value. Second, AR::Base.update returns the object whether save is successful or not; check it by calling club.valid?. Other than that, I think you’d have to post the code that you’re using in the controller to update the club and the code that you use successfully in the console.
