Deploying rails

hey everyone, im still a newbie, and i am having trouble deploying my
rails
application.

I am using netfirms.com (hosting), through MAC OSX and i have been able
to
get my SSH server running, and i have copied my app through ftp on to
the
server. they have a helper here:
http://support.netfirms.com/idx.php/0/649/article/Ruby-on-Rails-Quickstart-Guide.html

i remembered to change my database.yml settings in production to the one
i
created on my server and I changed my environment.rb so that
ENV[‘RAILS_ENV’] ||= ‘production’ is enabled.

so now i am stuck…i am not sure if i am supposed to upload my database
directly into the new one, or run some sort of rake command in SSH? my
databases are currently empty.

also when i try to look at my app online (actually called)
motionsickness.ca/photos i get this error:

In order to view your homepage, please name your main page “index.htm”

(using lower case letters).

it could be because i rerouted my pages, and deleted the index.rhtml,
but im
not sure how to fix that.

i would love some help here…i’ve looked into capistrano, but i don’t
think
i need to go through that, do i? And i’m not sure what it’s asking me to
do
differently.

any guidance would be great.

PS: im trying to upload the application i created in Ruby on Rails: Up
and
Running (hibbs & tate) so i can practice deploying. FYI
