Rails Date.today reflects server deployment date
I have a rails app that displays active EVENTS (Events that happened today or since).
scope :active, where("event_date >= ?", Date.today).order("event_date ASC")
It is doing well locally. But on the production server, the query takes the deployment date for comparison.
This is a magazine
SELECT "events".* FROM "events" WHERE "events"."school_id" = 32 AND (roster_id in (45) or roster_id IS NULL) AND (event_date >= '2014-09-18') ORDER BY event_date ASC
But if you check the console in production it displays correctly
1.9.3-p448 :001 > Date.today => Fri, 19 Sep 2014
The server is on AWS EC2
Any help is greatly appreciated.
