Hi, Whenever I try to use push my app on heroku using the command: git push heroku master

I get the following errors:

Bundle completed (25.92s) Cleaning up the bundler cache. -----> Writing config/database.yml to read from DATABASE_URL -----> Preparing app for Rails asset pipeline Running: rake assets:precompile Connecting to database specified by DATABASE_URL rake aborted! could not connect to server: Connection refused Is the server running on host "" and accepting TCP/IP connections on port 5432? Tasks: TOP => environment (See full trace by running task with --trace)

 !   ```  Precompiling assets failed.

Try putting this line:

config.assets.initialize_on_precompile = false

inside of config/application.rb.

@Jason Rader thanks. Its working now.

I'm glad!
