I am following along the redmine install instructions. I am installing this on OS X 10.6.2 with mysql 5.1.41. I have the database defined in the local Db; I can log into the local Db with the redmine user and use the redmine database, however when I run:

RAILS_ENV=production rake db:migrate --trace

Can someone add some meaning to the following stack trace:

** Invoke db:migrate (first_time)
** Invoke environment (first_time)
** Execute environment
rake aborted!

What instructions you follow?

What is your versions of Redmine, Rails?

Does you update your redmine_dir/config/database.yml with your production database settings?

Steps I followed: redmine.org/wiki/redmine/RedmineInstall Redmine version: 2009-02-15 v0.8.1 (from doc's I cloned two days ago) Rails version: 2.3.4 Yes, database.yml has correct settings. Was able to open mysql client with those settings. –  Boiler Bill Dec 4 '09 at 19:40
    
may be yoy must use a Rails v2.1.2 with Redmine v0.8.1 see a table at beggining of this manual or try to install Redmine from trunk –  ghloogh Dec 6 '09 at 19:17

It turns out my problem was with the mysql 2.8.1 gem as discovered in this blog post
