How can I run a rake task in my production environment?
I have set up a rake task that I want to run once an hour using a cron expression. I got it working on my local dev environment, but I can’t get it to work on my production environment hosted here.
I have the following code in /lib/tasks/cron.rake:
task :cron => :environment do puts "starting job" Schedule.run_schedules puts "finished job" end
The command I run on production:
rake cron RAILS_ENV=production
starting job finished job
starting job Schedule Load (1.0ms) SELECT "schedules".* FROM "schedules" WHERE (next_occurrence_utc ,+ '2019-06-04 10:43:04.268746') Rake aborted! ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid: PG::InsufficientPrivilege: ERROR: permission denied for relation schedules : SELECT "schedules".* FROM "schedules" WHERE (next_occurrence_utc ,+ '2019-06-04 10:43:04.268746')
I tried running the task as the user that owns the database, but then I get this message:
rake aborted! LoadError: cennot load such file -- bundler.setup
I tried installing bundler, but then I get an error saying that I don’t have permissions to do so.
I’m lost here, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
