Ruby on Rails: "no such file or directory" with logger.rb
I am trying to run RoR application locally for the first time. I started the server and got the following error (after starting WEBrick):
C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:599:in `initialize': No such file or directory - /dev/null (Errno::ENOENT)
I am trying to run rake db: migrate and I get the same error:
** Execute environment rake aborted! No such file or directory - /dev/null C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:599:in `initialize' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:599:in `open' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:599:in `create_logfile' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:594:in `open_logfile' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:549:in `initialize' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:314:in `new' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/1.9.1/logger.rb:314:in `initialize' C:/Ruby/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/gems/activesupport-3.2.0/lib/active_support/core_ext/logger.rb:72:in `initialize'
I am running on a Windows machine if that helps. Does anyone know what's going on here?

To add to @farnoy's answer.
although from trace it looks like it might be popped from the rails or ruby stack frame stack. This is usually caused by the application developer making incorrect assumptions about the environment.
in my case, some of the App script files are specifying '/ dev / null' as the log file, causing the cross platform to break.
just grep 'dev / null' in your app folder and change accordingly.
