Deploying Heroku

When I deployed my app to Heroku all of my links quit working. All I get is "We're sorry, but something went wrong". When I test it local everything works great. Also when I deployed to Heroku I received no error messages.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any ideas?

About an hour after I posted this I figured it out. I had to run:

$heroku rake run db:reset $heroku rake run db:migrate $heroku restart

After that it worked perfectly.

good job figuring it out, the production databse is seperate from the development and testing databases,

just a quick tip: To get a more helpful error message than "Were sorry..." run heroku logs in the console (give it some seconds to load). This will print out detailed error messages of your app, making debugging much easier.
