Ignore that I screwed up the title XD


I'm encountering a really confusing Rendering error in rails that I can't explain. Maybe somebody has an idea?


When I run my code on a local rails server the following code isn't properly rendering the HTML. Yet, when I run it on a deployed server it renders correctly. The only difference I can find is that locally the server is WebBrick and the deployed server is Passenger. On both servers the version of the NestedForm gem is 0.32. I've checked and all code (all gems and my code) is exactly the same.

class BackupAndRestore < ActiveRecord::Base
  def backup_options
      ["Backup", "Backup"],
      ["Restore", "Restore"]


<%= f.select(:backup_or_restore, options_for_select(@backup_and_restore.backup_options),{},{class: 'form-control input-sm'}) %>

The HTML output on web brick is:

 <select id="backup_or_restore_<option value=&quot;Backup&quot;>Backup</option><option value=&quot;Restore&quot;>Restore</option>" name="backup_or_restore[<option value=&quot;Backup&quot;>Backup</option><option value=&quot;Restore&quot;>Restore</option>]"></select>
Notice how the options are rendered in the id and name attributes and no CSS classes rendered?


On the passenger server:

<select class="form-control input-sm" id="backup_and_restore_backup_or_restore" name="backup_and_restore[backup_or_restore]"><option value="Backup">Backup</option><option value="Restore">Restore</option></select>

Any thoughts? Only thought is it's some difference in the servers ?
