Bug #8134

Dashboard won't db:migrate without a plugin installed.

Vanilla install of Dashboard from head, no plugins installed.

puppet-dashboard nigel (master)$ rake RAILS_ENV=production db:migrate
(in /home/nigel/src/puppet-dashboard)
rake aborted!
No such file or directory - /home/nigel/src/puppet-dashboard/lib/../config/installed_plugins

I made the directory by hand, and the rake task works.

Mike, adding you as a watcher on this.

This is a blocker for the next stable release of Dashboard I believe.

I haven’t seen this on any of our RCs. Is this still the case?

#3 Updated by Nigel Kersten over 4 years ago

I believe this got fixed when we moved away from symlinks, but I can’t speak for sure.
