Application error

What could possibly cause this error:

Application error
Rails application failed to start properly"

When I load a controller in a browser?

I have created the controller, model, and view; created the database
table, and updated database.yml.


Hi Chris

Did you install Rails with no error message.
If you are in Windows, there is a one-click installer available

Probably something in your environment.rb. Check your log files. Can
also be stuff like it not being able to create sessions etc…


Thanks, CCH. I didn’t install rails. This is hosted at

Thanks, Frederick!

My server.log, production.log, and test.log are all empty. My
development.log has contents describing the “rake db:migrate” command
results. I don’t see any obvious errors.
