Thanks Vladimir; my apologies, I meant to mention that Ruby is installed
with rbenv, but using a “global” setup at /opt/rbenv and not in a home
I am setting up RAILS_ENV to production using the “environment” command in
the deploy_revision resource.
My database.yml is a symlink to the “shared” one
at /var/www/shared/config/database.yml. That file has restrictive
permissions (owner root:nginx with ug+r; or 0440), while all directories
from /var/www below have owner root:nginx and permissions u+rwx,g+rx; or
One point of confusion I have, is which user actually runs the “rake
db:migrate” command? I didn’t see anywhere to set this using the deploy

This is permission issue.
Or may be environment variables do not setup correctly.
I don’t know application cookbook. But I has a question: where is the ruby
installed with it (in home or system ruby)?

I’m using the deploy cookbook to deploy a Rails app (nginx + passenger).
I’m running “bundle exec rake db:migrate --trace” during the migration
step, after the database is created. Many times this step will fail with:
ERROR: deploy_revision[/var/www] (_site::deploy line 39) had an error:
Chef::Exceptions::Exec: bundle exec rake db:migrate --trace returned 1,
It is very frustrating because it will sometimes succeed but often will
fail. It seems like more often, when I run via knife ssh ("knife ssh
’fqdn:xxx*’ ‘sudo chef-client’), it will fail at the above step, then I ssh
into the actual box, start a shell as root (“sudo su -”) then run
chef-client and it will succeed.
I see that the unix error code “1” means a permissions issue; is that
what I’m facing here or is rake (er, bundle I guess) just using this as a
generic error return code? Any way I can get a more specific reason as to
why the migrate is failing?
The chef-stacktrace.out file doesn’t give any more specific info about
the actual db:migrate failure.
