You may have noticed this error recently running
rake db:create or
rake db:migrate… The newest version of Rake (0.9+) breaks rails.
If you are getting this error:
WARNING: Global access to Rake DSL methods is deprecated. Please Include
....Rake::DSL into classes and modules which use the Rake DSL methods.
There are two ways to fix this
- The quick fix is to just downgrade to Rake 0.8.7 by doing the following:
Add the gem version to your Gemfile
gem "rake", "0.8.7"
Remove rake 0.9.1 by running
gem uninstall rake -v=0.9.1
bundle update rake
- The other option is to add the following to your Rakefile above the
module ::YourApplicationName class Application include Rake::DSL end end module ::RakeFileUtils extend Rake::FileUtilsExt end
Let me know if you’re still having problems.
