Blogging With Typo
Most important thing was to have correct database.yml configuration. I was missing the socket option - this would cause typo to just hang, with no indication of what was going wrong - no writes to log files, nothing
My database.yml now is
login: &login adapter: mysql host: localhost user: typo password: xxxxxxx socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock development: database: typo_dev <<: *login production: database: typo <<: *login test: database: typo_test <<: *login
The location of mysqld.sock is specific to Debian based systems, yours may vary. Its really really annoying that the typo guys don’t put this is
database.example.yml. Its also pretty annoying how poorly documented typo is.
Super Long Commit
When committing this post typo seemed to hang once again, the post did finally go through but it took ages. Wonder if it could be a DNS thing?
