    I could get it working on heroku…but I still would like to test my app since I want to add more features on my local machine. When I run rails s command I get an error that the active record is expecting SQLite…what should I do?

    Anyone else's app break when you uploaded? It worked for a total of 30 seconds I browsed and:

    tried to login with my test user >
    denied me >
    then broke >.

    When I checked the logs in heroku I get:

    app[web.1]: Completed 500 Internal Server Error in 2ms (ActiveRecord: 1.1ms)
    app[web.1]: ActiveRecord::StatementInvalid (PG::UndefinedTable: ERROR: relation "posts" does not exist

    I thought this was the point of doing heroku run rake db:migrate?
