Running migrations in production mode (rails)

Hi guys,

I have a Rails application up at In config/environment.rb, I have forced the application into “production” mode with the line:

RAILS_ENV = ‘production’

When I check the RAILS_ENV variable in IRB, it says “production.”

However, when I run a migration, it uses the development database. I have tried killing my ruby process and restarting it by accessing Knosk, but running a migration after this still only deals with the development database.

Can anyone help me switch my database into production mode?

I appreciate your help fellow Ruby ninjas.
