Database.yml and sqlite3 errors

I’m going by the tutorial at <http://www.sitepoint.com/article/ruby-on-
rails> but am having problems with the database.yml file, I believe.
This may be due to my using a different platform than the author. I’ve
tried a few different variations on the database.yml file, here’s what I
currently have:

You don’t want that t in front of adapter.

http://www.digitalmediaminute.com/howto/fc4rails/ gives the
following database.yml:

development:
adapter: mysql
socket: /var/lib/mysql/mysql.sock
database: contacts
host: localhost
username: root
password: yourPassword

This form makes sense, however, I’ve seen various entries for the
socket. How do you know what to enter for the socket?

thanks,

Depends on your database configuration.

find / -type s -name *sock -print

or ask your database admin.

I took out the tabs so that it’s:

[email protected] ~/rubyCode $
[email protected] ~/rubyCode $ cat ShoppingList/config/database.yml

development:
adapter: mysql
database: shopping_development
username: ruby
password: rails
host: localhost
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
test:
adapter: mysql
database: shopping_test

password: rails
host: localhost
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock
production:
adapter: mysql
database: shopping_production
username: ruby
password: rails
host: localhost
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

[email protected] ~/rubyCode $ date

but with no tabs and now it’s all good :slight_smile:

thanks,

I had the same problem .

it is the solution
Without spaces between any variable.
Ej:
adapter: mysql
encoding: utf8
database: namedb
username: root
password: mypassword
host: localhost
socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock

and later every thing was ok.

if you have errors please contact me [email protected]

Blessings !!!
