Can't reach a controller :(

When I try to see a controller I get a 404 error, this is what WEBrick

What could it be? Thanks for the help :wink:

first of all, there could be a million reasons why this webrick isn’t
running correctly, starting from the method not being there to
permissions on your server, etc etc .

it looks as if you tried reaching

localhost:3000/say/hello .

what controller are you trying to access? according to default rail
values (assuming u didn’t change anything) you should be trying to
access a controller class SayController with the action hello being
defined. (ie, you should have in your controllers/ folder a file called
something like * with ->


class SayController < ApplicationController


def hello
#…some good code here


is this your case so far?

Yes, exactly, I have generated the controller using the script and I
have an action defined on the controller (actually, is the example of
the agile development with rails book). I haven’t changed anything of
the settings of rails, and I’ve tried with an Apache server and it was
a 404 too

thanks for the answer

I’ve been thinking about it, and I tried with the rails package from
the debian repository, instead of the rails from gems

Now, it works properly. Thanks for the help anyway.
