undefined method when starting redmine

Added by rob richards over 13 years ago


On my windows laptop I have redmine running perfectly. played with it. nice. time to place on web host.
On my linux webhost I have installed redmine and when I fire up the server I get the error msg:

  • Starting Mongrel listening at
  • Starting Rails with production environment...
    /home/rtfminc/etc/rails_apps/redmine/app/controllers/boards_controller.rb:19: undefined method `default_search_scope' for BoardsController:Class (NoMethodError)
    from /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `gem_original_require'
    from /usr/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.8/rubygems/custom_require.rb:31:in `require'
    I have searched these forums on "default_search_scope" to no luck and "undefined method" was too broad, or I got lost.
    Some help understanding this problem would be appreciated! I do know some Ruby/Rails so will try and track this down, but I've spent a few hours going nowhere. Here is the info for my system..

What version of Redmine are you using? Rails 2.3.3 isn't supported in any versions, so your config/environment.rb must have been modified.
