Having some Issues regarding Rails 5.2 upgrade

Rails • Asked by Damian Nelwep

Hi everyone,

I was working on using ActiveStorage on an app I had begun like 6month to 1year ago. So Rails wasn't the right version and I put 'gem 'rails', '~> 5.2', '>= 5.2.2' ' in my Gemfile and then 'bundle install rails' to upgrade it and be able to use the new Storage function.

But when I type rails s (db:migrate worked well) , I have some error which seem to be connected to the fact I upgraded rails.. :

/home/meaw/.rbenv/versions/2.5.3/lib/ruby/gems/2.5.0/gems/railties-5.2.2/lib/rails/railtie/configuration.rb:97:in `method_missing': undefined method `action_storage' for #<Rails::Application::Configuration:0x000055e7bdaaed30> (NoMethodError)

This is the last line. Before it there is :

$ rails s
=> Booting Puma
=> Rails 5.2.2 application starting in development 
=> Run `rails server -h` for more startup options
Exiting
Traceback (most recent call last):

So I don't know how to debug this without going back to the earlier rails version I was working on....

Thanks in advance to the kind person who would come to help me!


Have you ran $ rails active_storage:install which generates a migration to add the two new tables active_storage_attachments and active_storage_blobs? You'll of course also need to then run $ rails db:migrate.


Yes I did that of course...
