Instant Rails

I’m having a newbie problem getting Instant Rails to start WEBrick.

I’ve created a demo project by type Rails Demo at the InstantRails
command prompt. This worked fine.

I then navigate to the Demo directory and type ruby script/server. I
get the following errors…

C:\InstantRails\InstantRails\rails_apps\demo>ruby script/server

Does anybody have an idea of how i might fix this?

Thanks.

Ron,

Check your config/database.yaml and config/environment.rb files and
make sure they exist and are configured correctly.

They exist. I’m not really sure what i’m looking for in them, but i
didn’t touch them. I’m assuming Instant Rails automatically creates
the database for you. I also cannot get the sample cookbook projects
to start when i click on ‘start with mongrel’, the dos window closes
right away.

No, rails does not create the database for you. The
config/database.yaml file will have default names for your
development, test, and production databases, but you still have to
physically create the database (and change the names if you choose a
different name).

To see what’s going on with Mongrel, open a Ruby console window
through Instant Rails, navigate into the cookbook directory, and run
the command “mongrel_rails”. Now you should be ably to see why its
aborting without the window going away on you.

Sorry, I should have said to run the command “mongrel_rails start”.
You can also force mongrel to do debug logging with “mongrel_rails
start -B”, then look for the log file in your Rails app’s “log”
subdirectory.
