adapter connection options incompatible with most database.yml files

Reported by Martin Gamsjaeger (snusnu) | June 3rd, 2009 @ 03:45 PM

Most database.yml files out there get generated / or are already present with the following options

database: name_of_db
username: user_name

but 0.10.0 needs

path: name_of_db
user: user_name

when using 'database' instead of 'path' one hits a nullpointer at


when using 'username' instead of 'user' dm always tries to connect with the root user, and the following error is displayed:

Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

This is at least confirmed for mysql and postgres

Maybe it's a good idea to support both variants, since this won't "break" all existing database.yml files out there
