How to set a page of root/ dir of a site


#1

Hi all,

I have started making a site in ruby/rails and just wondering how to
set the page for the root/ dir of the site as i have got the other pages
done ie:-

example/dir1
example/dir2
example/dir3
example/dir4

but just wondering how to set the example/ page as it always appears as
the welcome to ruby page

any help will be great

thanks

paul

I see 2 steps:

  1. move the /public/index.html file to another name (e.g. $mv
    index.html index.html.ORIG)

  2. add a route for ‘/’ in config/routes.rb

in the config/routes.rb near the the bottom of the file, but before
the default routes,
do something along the lines of

map.connect( ‘’, :controller=>‘home’)

if you have a app/controllers/home_controller.rb

HTH,
