db:session:create does not seem to work for creating Sessions table

Posted by arjunghosh on January 4, 2008

Well we all know when have multiple machines accessing the same session information, we need need to store the session information somewhere so that all the servers can access it. The solution is store the session information in a database and access the session information from the database.

So with that purpose in mind, I searched some rails books and found that rails has a way to putting sessions in the database.

rake db:session:create

So went ahead an entered this command at my console for my application. And lo behold, what has happened!!!

I get the following error:

(in F:/testdev/trunk)
rake aborted!
Don’t know how to build task ‘db:session:create’
(See full trace by running task with –trace)

So I checked the rake –help and also googled it. It seem lot of them have the same error. In fact it seem that AWS 2nd book also has this error as per an excellent writeup in a blog.

And here I found the solution:

rake db:sessions:create

The issue was with a single ‘s’. Now I use a rake version 0.7.3. Is that the problem? Am I using a lower version of rake?
