Error 500 when displaying after creating a controller

Hello,

I’m currently learning RoR but I’m facing yp to a displaying issue.
I created a RoR project via the command rails project in the OS Linux
Ubuntu
Then, I also created a controller:

sudo script/generate controller about
exists app/controllers/
exists app/helpers/
create app/views/about
exists test/functional/
create app/controllers/about_controller.rb
create test/functional/about_controller_test.rb
create app/helpers/about_helper.rb

When firing up firefox with this url

http://localhost:3000/about

I get 500 error :

script/server

Could this come from the route.rb file knowing that I moved the
index.html file

more routes.rb
ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|

The priority is based upon order of creation: first created ->

highest prior
ity.

Sample of regular route:

map.connect ‘products/:id’, :controller => ‘catalog’, :action =>

‘view’

Keep in mind you can assign values other than :controller

and :action

Sample of named route:

map.purchase ‘products/:id/purchase’, :controller =>

‘catalog’, :action => ’
purchase’

This route can be invoked with purchase_url(:id => product.id)

You can have the root of your site routed by hooking up ‘’

– just remember to delete public/index.html.

map.connect ‘’, :controller => “welcome”

Allow downloading Web Service WSDL as a file with an extension

instead of a file named ‘wsdl’

map.connect ‘:controller/service.wsdl’, :action => ‘wsdl’

Install the default route as the lowest priority.

map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id.:format’
map.connect ‘:controller/:action/:id’
end

Any help will be appreciated.

arte_fact

check in logs/development.log
You’ll probably find some useful errors there cluing you into what went
wrong.
