Gem::LoadError: Add `gem 'mysql'` to your Gemfile

Gem::LoadError: Specified 'mysql' for database adapter, but the gem is not loaded. Add `gem 'mysql'` to your Gemfile.


I have been getting this error when I was following this guide:
http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org/contributing_to_ruby_on_rails.html
and running

$ cd activerecord
$ bundle exec rake test_sqlite3


After searching around for a bit, I've been told I need to modify the
Gemfile
and add
gem 'mysql'
then run
bundle install
. However, I am not able to see mysql in the list.

Help please?

Answer

SOLVED: This took me a while to figure out, and I blame the guide's fault. Anyways, make SURE you're editing the correct Gemfile, and to do a bundle install in the directory with the Gemfile that you changed. When I ran

$ cd rails
$ bundle exec rails new ~/my-test-app --dev

that actually created a folder called my-test-app (which contained a Gemfile) in my home directory but I had to run $ bundle exec rake test_sqlite3 in my rails directory (which also contained a Gemfile).

Looking at my output above, it said Gems in the group db were not installed. when I ran bundle install, and was referring to lines in my Gemfile that weren't executing, and they just so happened to be the gem lines that install mysql, mysql2, and postgresql. I corrected the file like so:

Gemfile

  # AR
  gem 'sqlite3', '~> 1.3.6'
  gem 'mysql', '~> 2.9.1'
  gem 'mysql2', '~> 0.3.13'
  gem 'pg', '~> 0.17.0'

  group :db do
#    gem 'pg', '>= 0.11.0'
#    gem 'mysql', '>= 2.9.0'
#    gem 'mysql2', '>= 0.3.13'
  end
