Help please: app stopped working

When I returned from a short vacation I found that my first Rails app
I had just finished and which I left ? I thought ? in perfect working
conditions had thrown the towel all together. It now times out with
the message “Application error ? Rails application failed to start
I have no yet clue as to what may have caused the app’s change of mind.
Hopefully someone here can tip me off!

Some information:
It’s hosted on a Dreamhost shared hosting account
It’s set up following their leads at
It doesn’t use any gems
The logs don’t get touched anymore, so there’s nothing to learn from

Thanks for any help!
