Rails 2.3 + Mongrel: Deploy with --prefix causes AbstractRequest Error

Reported by Peter Leonhardt | March 23rd, 2009 @ 10:54 PM | in 2.x

Hey guys,

I think this is more of a mongrel problem, but seeing as how that hasn't had an update in a year, I'm wondering if we can fix this on the rails side.

Using mongrel_rails start --prefix /something

now breaks, because on line 151 of mongrel/rails.rb reads

ActionController::AbstractRequest.relative_url_root = ops[:prefix] if ops[:prefix]

Since AbstractRequest has been removed, this throws a "undefined constant ActionController::AbstractRequest" error. And relative_url_root is now on ActionController::Base

I've worked around it by adding:

module ActionController
  class AbstractRequest < ActionController::Request
    def self.relative_url_root=(path)
    def self.relative_url_root

to my /lib directory in my apps

Not sure if you guys want to allow the backward compatibility or not, but wanted to bring the problem to your attention.
