(ActiveRecord::AdapterNotSpecified) Error


#1

All,
I am on Mac OS X 10.4, went through all the installation steps for mysql
and ruby on rails. Now, I am getting this error when
trying to start webrick or when trying to create the tables:

/usr/lib/ruby/gems/1.8/gems/activerecord-1.13.2/lib/active_record/
connection_adapters/abstract/connection_specification.rb:73:in
`establish_connection’: development database is not
configured (ActiveRecord::AdapterNotSpecified)

I am using the following database.yml file (passwords replaced with *):

development:
adapter: mysql
host: localhost
database: depot_development
username: root
password: ********

test:
adapter: mysql
host: localhost
database: depot_test
username: root
password: ****

production:
adapter: mysql
host: localhost
database: depot_production
username: root
password: *****

Please help!!!

Thanks

Double-check your database.yml file against the example one.
Whitespace is significant in YAML files, so make sure you don’t have
any trailing spaces, or mixtures of tab characters and spaces, etc,
etc. Your text editor may be doing some strange replacements on your
behalf.
