Boy, this is a very weird feeling. Excitement mixed with frustration! Am
really excited to learn Ruby and was following the examples of Ruby For
Rails e-book (manning) and finally, after getting all the coding and
settings bits done, I cant get it to work!
The example (chapter 2), after creating the Rails app, coding the show
and welcome methods, setting the route, database, layouts, …etc, the
instruction was to start webrick using ./script/server [-b domain] [-p
port] and then point the browser to http://localhost:3000
Did that and i only get the “Welcome Aboard Ruby on Rails” web page.
Tried to use 127.0.0.1 and get prompted by windows for user id and
password which does not seem to like my login credentials and tells me
that i’m unauthorized to view the page!
Installed the complete bundle of rails which came with mysql, php,
apache…hope someone out there can help me get through this stage!
