Hi All, I just installed Ruby on Rails on my MacBook Pro and tried to create the Hello World app that is documented in the Agile Development with Rails book. I followed all the instructions for creating the Hello World app but get the following error when I try to load http://localhost:3000/say/hello MissingSourceFile in SayController#index no such file to load -- sqlite3 Can anyone please let me know what I need to do to fix this issue? Thanks! P.S., I have the following things installed on my MacBook Pro: 1. Ruby 1.8.6 2. Rails 2.1.2 3. MySQL 5.0.67

(I think mysql used to be the default some time ago). You can alter the database and connection settings in config/ database.yaml. -- Daniel B.

its looking sqlite3 database which is not installed on your mac. get the binary for mac from here http://www.sqlite.org/download.html install it and then run sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby and you should be ok to go. Otherwise if you want to use mysql then change your database.yml file in the config directory like so (and remove all config options for sqlite3) development: adapter: mysql database: db_name username: root password: host: localhost encoding: utf8 do this for test and production as well
