Upgrading from Rails 4.1.4 to Rails 4.1.8

Problem when upgrading from Rails 4.1.4 to Rails 4.1.8

rails -v
Bundler is using a binstub that was created for a different gem.
This is deprecated, in future versions you may need to `bundle binstub rails` to work around a system/bundle conflict.
Rails 4.1.8

$rm -rf bin/*
$bundle exec rake rails:update:bin
zepho-mac-pro:lafon zepho$ rails -v
Rails 4.1.8

Deploying a Rails App on Google App Engine

Deploying a Rails Webapp on GAE should be a piece of cake right? Due to lack of good documentation, it is not that easy. I had to dig around to find the versions of the software installed for Ruby Stack One-Click Deploy.

Here is some useful information to access installed software components.
Apache web server:  

Configuration directory: /etc/apache2
Default website directory: /var/www
Command to start Apache web server: sudo service apache2 start
Command to stop Apache web server: sudo service apache2 stop


Help command: passenger --help
Install directory: /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.1.1/gems/passenger-4.0.48


Command to access MySQL: mysql -u root -p
Command to start MySQL service: sudo service mysql start
Command to stop MySQL service: sudo service mysql stop

RVM, Ruby and Rails:

RVM Help command: rvm
Rails help command: rails -h
RVM install directory: /usr/local/rvm
Ruby install directory: /usr/local/rvm/src/ruby-2.1.1
Rails install directory: /usr/local/rvm/gems/ruby-2.1.1/gems/rails-4.1.4

Stripe API Capybara Test Failures

I was getting Stripe::InvalidRequestError: You must supply either a card or a customer id error. To fix this, make sure js is true in your integration test like this:

feature 'Guest Checkout' do
  scenario 'Complete purchase of one product', js: true do
    visit products_show_path
    click_link 'Buy Now'
    fill_in "Card Number", with: '4242424242424242' '10', from: "card_month" '2029', from: 'card_year'
    click_button 'Buy Now'
    expect(page).to have_content('Receipt')
