Hopefully someone can help me with this. I'm trying to learn Ruby on
Rails and have GoDaddy as a web host. I've followed their help files and
taken the following steps.

I've made sure my plan supports Rails. I used their interface to create
the directory (test2). I then used an FTP client to upload my project
files to the directory I made. Also to clarify, this is just a simple
"Hello World" type page, no database access or anything. I just want to
see if it can work.

I removed the default index.html from the public directory and adjusted
the routes.rb file to make the controller "My_Test" the default when
loading the project.

I also followed the GoDaddy instructions to create a symbolic link for
this directory, called "t2".

Alright, now that I've explained what I've done, here's the issue I'm
getting. Whenever I try to load the page
( or or I get an HTTP 500
internal error page or a page not found error.

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong? I've spend a couple of hours on
the phone with GoDaddy support and they can't help me.

Thanks in advance.
