You need to set up the test database. It is separate from the database your site runs on. Use:

rake db:test:prepare #to catch up the test database to current migrations
rake db:test:load #redo the test database to match the schema.rb file

Hope that helps!

Aaaahhh...yes that's the ticket.. that fixed it, thank you.
