Hey I am new to RoR. I used Dan Benjamins install. Installing MySQL and RoR using the terminal. I made two files. One the controller, called say_controller and than I made a views file, called hello.html.erb Instead of getting "Hello, world!" I get SyntaxError in SayController#hello /Users/arongrinshtein/agile/demo/app/controllers/say_controller.rb:3: syntax error, unexpected $end, expecting kEND Any ideas? I am keen to get coding. Thanks!

It probably is just a syntax error like a stray or missing 'end'. Hard to say without seeing the controller code though. Fred

Here is the controller code. class SayController < ApplicationController def hello end I just copied and pasted from "Agile Web development with rails." On Jan 23, 1:13 pm, Frederick C. <firstname.lastname@example.org>

put another end after def hello

Did that. Now I get another error. MissingSourceFile in SayController#hello no such file to load -- sqlite3 It is possible that is the case because I set RoR up with MySQL, following Dan Benjamins tutorials. http://danbenjamin.com/articles/2008/02/ruby-rails-leopard http://danbenjamin.com/articles/2007/11/installing... Any ideas how to connect it with MySQL or should I connect it with SQLite. Not that I know the difference. Thanks for your help guys.

you may not have the sqlite3 gem installed. sudo gem install sqlite3-ruby also make sure you run your migrations rake db:migrate then you should be good to go.

THANKS GUYS! It is working. The only thing is, is there any way to configure it with MySQL. Is there any reason to do that?

The default database for Rails apps was changed from Mysql to Sqlite. Thankfully, it's quite easy to switch your DB: If you are starting a Rails project from scratch, run your rails command like so: rails -d mysql myapp If you want to switch an exisiting project from Sqlite to Mysql: set adapter to "mysql" in your config/database.yml file.
