Beginner question - MySQL db:migrate error

Hi,

I am pretty frustrated with my first attempts to create a simple ruby
on rails project with mysql.

I get a strange error when I run the rake db:migrate

“NoMethodError: undefined method `ord’ for 1:Fixnum: SHOW TABLES”

Anybody any suggestions what that might be?

Thanks

First, I would recommend trying something simply like the following:

$ rails test
$ cd test
$ script/generate scaffold post title:string body:text
$ rake db:migrate
$ script/server

Next, verify that you can properly navigate to the URL,
http://localhost:3000/posts

Finally, posts the results of the above simple experiment. OK?

Good luck,
