I am trying to create a hello world application, where the controller
(Say) only has one action:

def hello

And the view, hello.rhtml, has <h1>HELLO WORLD</h1>.  When I run it,
it says Missing template say/hello.html.erb in view path C:/

I put hello.rhtml (also tried .html.erb, same error) in that spot, but
it still gives the missing template error.

I appreciate your help!

So you have the view template

and the view template looks like

<h1>HELLO WORLD</h1>

and the controller


and the controller looks like

class SayController < ApplicationController
  def hello

and you're still getting an error?

These are the steps I would take to set up that app.

In the terminal window:

$ rails bob

$ cd bob

/bob$ script/generate controller Say hello (this will set up the empty
hello method in the Say controller and hello.html.erb)

/bob$ script/server

Open the hello.html.erb template and change the contents to <h1>Hello,

Open a browser and navigate to http://localhost:3000/say/hello

Hope this helps.
