Cannot get past "Booting WEBrick"

Hi Everyone,

I am following the ‘Agile Web Dev. with Rails’ book, and I used instant
rails to do the install on a Windows machine. Everything seemed to work
fine until I got to:

Booting WEBrick…

After that, nothing happens. I tried creating a new rails application,
but
I get the same
problem. I also tried reinstalling to no avail.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help.

Well, I have just installed rails with RubyGem. What I do is to create a
new app and then I start WEBrick from this new app. Then, I open a new
command window to keep on doing things, while the first one stays with
the server, let’s say.

I hope this gives you any hint to your problem… :S

I don’t use Windows, but it seems your problem is with your Webrick
installation.

You could try installing
Mongrelhttp://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/win32.htmland using that
instead as your webserver.
