Heroku: Application Error

Heroku Application Error

Just in case anyone else is receiving an ‘Application Error: An Error occurred in the application and your page could not be served’ error after pushing your rails project my fix was pretty simple.

In the console I ran:
heroku run rake db:migrate

This gave me an error saying that because Heroku didn’t support SQLite3 at a production level I needed to use postgresql, however I had forgotten to include the gem in the gemfile.

Included gem ‘pg’ in my gemfile

$ bundle update
$git add -A
$git commit -m “add gem ‘pg’ to gemfile”
$git push heroku master

Came back working!
