I'm guessing the key is inside "find_account_by_subdomain_or_url". Do
you have that defined somewhere? It probably calls something like:
@account = Account.find_by_subdomain(blah) or Account.find_by_url(blah)
In which case that's probably what you need to stub. Nothing is
actually checking for the return value of the controller method or
assigning it to @account. In other words, you probably should do
Account.stub! instead of controller.stub! Check what's in that method
and see if that gets you closer to the solution.
