#3180 ✓invalid

Rails/Rake dropped my database on interrupt

Reported by aitrus | September 9th, 2009 @ 10:48 PM

@@@ LdapAccountRevision Columns (6.1ms) SHOW FIELDS FROM accounts LocalAccountRevision Columns (-0.9ms) SHOW FIELDS FROM accounts SQL (-2.9ms) SHOW TABLES SQL (1.0ms) SELECT version FROM schema_migrations SQL (0.1ms) SET NAMES 'utf8' SQL (0.1ms) SET SQL_AUTO_IS_NULL=0 SQL (0.0ms) Interrupt: : DROP DATABASE IF EXISTS usrsys_development

This is just odd.  I was updating thinking_sphinx to the most current version.  At one point, I typed "rake" and hit enter by mistake.  I interrupted it with Ctrl+C and... my database vanished.

    • State changed from “new” to “invalid”

    rake by itself will run the tests. If you're pointing your test environment at your development database, this is why it's disappearing. You should use two separate databases for development and test.
