cPanel RoR with mySQL database


I have just started using Ruby on Rails with cPanel. I can set up my
application ok but I am having problems with linking the application
with a mysql database.

I have run ruby sctipt/generate model and created the table through the
migration. The table appears in the database correctly.

The original settings were for sqlite3 but I want to use mysql so that
may be the issue.

I have changed the database.yml file matching with the correct db
adapter: mysql
database: [hidden]
username: [hidden]
password: [hidden]
host: localhost
socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock

I want to access a table from the db.

In the team controller I do this (i have a table called teams);

@team = Team.find(:all)

and in the views do this;

<% for player in @team %>
<%= %>
<% end %>

but I get this error;

NoMethodError in Team#index

Showing team/index.html.erb where line #4 raised:

You have a nil object when you didn’t expect it!
You might have expected an instance of Array.
The error occurred while evaluating nil.each

Extracted source (around line #4):

1: Team Says Hi

4: <% for player in @team %>
5: <%= %>
6: <% end %>

hope you can help.

Thanks a lot
