We have a pĆ¼roblem with migrating a plugin called "redmine-blocks".
We removed old folder in /redmine/vendor/plugins and created new one.
Then we called "rake db:migrate_plugins RAILS_ENV=production" in /redmine folder a no database migration took place.
We restarted apache and when clicking on project we get internal error and this log:

ctionView::TemplateError (Mysql::Error: Table 'redmine.overview_blocks' doesn't exist: SHOW FIELDS FROM `overview_blocks`) on line #88 of vendor/plugins/projects_tree_view/app/views/projects/show.rhtml:

As we take a look into mysql database "redmine", there is no table created with that name "overview_blocks".
Then we took a look into the plugins folder vendor/plugins/redmine_blocks/db/migrate and into the file "001_create_tables.rb"

class CreateTables < ActiveRecord::Migration
  def self.up
    create_table :overview_blocks do |t|
      t.column :project_id, :integer, :null =>false
      t.column :name, :string, :unique=>true, :null => false

    create_table :home_blocks do |t|
      t.column :name, :string, :unique=>true, :null => false

    Project.find(:all).each do |prj| do |ob|
        ob.project_id = = 'members'
      end do |ob|
        ob.project_id = = 'news'
      end do |ob|
        ob.project_id = = 'issues'


  def self.down
    drop_table :overview_blocks
    drop_table :home_blocks

This look all right, but why does redmine migrate:db does not create this needed tables?
Is thete any reference table we have to clean up manually or do we have to rake "uinstall" something?

Tx for help

You should definitely report it to the plugin owner. FYI, you should call rake db:migrate:all to migrate everything including plugin. Plugin uninstallation steps depends on each plugin, but rake db:migrate:plugin NAME=redmine_blah VERSION=0 should be ok for most cases.
