Re: [PhillyOnRails] Elegant Reload of Custom Models

Hi All -

I'm a newbie [hopefully I'll meet some of you at the 2/19 pub night] and I'm wondering if there is an elegant way to reload custom models. It seems like all the solutions on the web are a bit hacked.
Any thoughts?


Hi Keith,

I'm new on the list too, and certainly wouldn't call myself a Rails expert, but I believe models are only loaded once: when the application starts. So the only way I know of to do this is to restart your application. Depending on your server setup there are different ways of doing this. For example on Apache/mod_fastcgi you can simply:

$> touch ./public/dispatch.fcgi

to get the application restarted and the models re-loaded. Of course this will restart all of your fcgi processes too, so the next person too your site will have to wait a bit longer for a response than usual.
