I just inherited a Ruby on Rails web site. I don't know anything about this topic (I do VB.NET normally). I'm so confused that I'm about to either throw my laptop out the window or throw myself out the window.... I connected to MySQL Query Browser and added a record using an INSERT command. But then on the web site, I don't see the new record anywhere. And vice versa... I add a record into the web site's CMS program but then I don't see it anywhere in MySQL. I don't know anything about Ruby on Rails apps. Do I need to compile it before seeing changes? or run some sort of deployment utility? Any help would be very helpful... Tom

Look in your config/database.yml file to see how your databases are configured. You should be in production mode on your server. I'm guessing you are looking at the wrong db.

Ben, Thanks for the reply. Do you know how I can toggle to "production mode"? I see 3 databases in the database.yml file (development, test, production). Thanks for your help. Tom
