Question

Rails 4 app is creating duplicate MySQL entries

I have a Rails 4 app running on the one-click Ruby on Rails instance. I followed this tutorial:

https://www.digitalocean.com/community/articles/how-to-launch-your-ruby-on-rails-app-with-the-digitalocean-one-click-image

Everything is working perfectly, except for one strange issue. Every time I create a new entry in my rails app through any sort of “create” action, two entries are added to the database. For example, the standard Rails scaffolding for creating a post will create two posts in the MySQL db instead of one. Has anyone experienced this before?

I should add that this is not happening in development. It’s only when I push the app to the server and run in production.

Are you still running in “development” mode on the server? Do you have precompiled assets in “public/assets”? Those things combined could be causing your issue: <br> <br>http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7721502/rails-3-1-remote-requests-submitting-twice <br> <br>Let us know if you’re still having a problem.
