Important notes on MySQL support
Be sure to first read and understand the security implications of
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE. In particular, having this enabled on a web app is probably not a good idea.
v0.9.5 will always use
LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE for bulk load - this is not configurable.
This version should by default use
LOAD DATA INFILE for safer defaults.
You can override this by passing
:local_infile => true though.
Troubleshooting LOCAL INFILE
If you enable
:local_infile => true and meet the following error, then you'll have to work it around.
The used command is not allowed with this MySQL version: LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE
For mysql2 with AR >= 3.1:
For mysql2 with AR < 3.1:
- no current easy solution afaik
- try this untested patch
Notes on SQLServer support
v0.9.5 had a broken support for SQLServer.
v1.0.0.rc1 has a work-in-progress bulk import using
freebcp. More tweaking needed.
Running the tests
You may have to tweak the Rakefile and database.yml a bit, but roughly:
rake ci:create_db rake "ci:run_one[mysql2,test/config/gemfiles/Gemfile.rails-3.2.x]"
You can also run a matrix of tests using:
- Thibaut Barrère (current maintainer)
- original code by Anthony Eden and probably others (let me know if you read this!)
- thanks to Zach Dennis for his work where I borrowed ideas for the rails 3 rewrite
