After deploying an app of Heroku I am having trouble getting the database populated with some of the data I need there. I ran heroku rake db:populate and it did create the initial admin user, but failed to put the rest of the data in.
I am populating the database with files from my local disk. I suspect the problem is caused because it sees nothing in the directory listed in the sample_data.rake file, as it in on my hdd and not the server. How can I get around this?
I figure that I have to either host all the files and change the directory to the servers directory, or find a way around this. I would guess there is an easy way to move the database from my computer to heroku? I'm obviously pretty new to this.
