What do you want it to do? What is the path supposed to load?

put the file in your ‘public’-folder of your rails app or make it
accessible by other means (= webserver).

Before you do rails driven sites work out about how webservers work
first.

Do you see what you’re doing here? You’re not opening a local file,
you’re asking a web server for a file. So either you need to put this
file in the public folder of your project (so the web server can find
it), configure your web server so it can find the file elsewhere, or,
if you really want the file to remain local, change the url to a local
path (“file:”). But unless this is for personal use only, I
don’t think that’s what you’re looking for.

Then again, if this is not for personal use, you might want to learn
a bit more about web servers first.

Same way you’d load anything else in the public folder, like images
or css files. Take a look at an example Rails site.
