Getting continuous errors on deploy during the bundle stage like so:

  /usr/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems/remote_fetcher.rb:215:in `fetch_http': bad response Not Found 404 (http://bb-m.rubygems.org/quick/Marshal.4.8/activesupport-3.2.11.gemspec.rz)
Is this because rubygems.org is being nailed?

seems to be - mine is stuck at getting metadata from rubygems.org for 45 minutes. is there an alternative server to fetch this from?

For a less hammered server, can use http://bundler-api.herokuapp.com

I usually just use that one for my apps, much faster than rubygems.org

It's been an hour, but you could also fetch straight from github with this in your Gemfile:

   gem "rails", :github => "rails/rails", :tag => 'v3.2.11'

This is a mirror, so that's why it's probably out of date...can you try just production.cf.rubygems.org ? I have heard zero reports of downtime or other issues. :/


Hi - thanks for responding. My deploy's gone through now, but I'm curious how I ended up contacting a mirror - I was running the default bundler capistrano task, so (approx):

  $ cd <deploy-path> && bundle install --gemfile Gemfile --path <shared-path>/bundle --without development test
I haven't deliberately pointed anything at a mirror - do you have any idea how might my install have ended up doing so? This is with rubygems 1.8.11, bundler 1.0.21.

I'm getting exactly the same thing. Glad to know it's not just me.

For the time being I've rolled back the gem changes and applied the suggested hotfix (removing XML from the default params parsers). I've been trying for a solid hour to get a deploy out with the updated rails version, and it's just not having any of it.

Edit: finally got it out. This deploy model is completely screwed, though. It just shouldn't be normal to have a service like rubygems.org in the daily deploy loop. This is absolutely not a knock on the fantastic volunteers that run it - they simply shouldn't be dealing with this sort of load spike.
