InstantRails: Cookbook not deployed

I downloaded InstantRails, configured the Host-File and now:
The servers seem to start (I assume, the stoplights pass from red to
green). Then I went into the menu : Rails Applications->Manage Rails
Applications, checked the cookbook and pushed “Start with Mongrel”. When
I try to access http://localhost:3001/cookbook I get a: “Action
Controller: Exception caught” in the title plus a “Routing error” and a
“Recognition failed for “/cookbook”” on the screen. I checked the Apache
log-file and it says:

[Wed Nov 15 12:25:00 2006] [error] [client] File does not
exist: c:/programme/ror/instantrails/www/cookbook
[Wed Nov 15 12:25:00 2006] [error] [client] File does not
exist: c:/programme/ror/instantrails/www/favicon.ico

But truly the file isnt there. Do I have to copy the files in rails_apps
manually to the www folder or what am I doing wrong?

The Access-Log states: - - [16/Nov/2006:10:46:14 +0100] “GET / HTTP/1.1” 200 220 - - [16/Nov/2006:10:46:14 +0100] “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”
200 0 - - [16/Nov/2006:10:46:14 +0100] “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”

200 - - - [16/Nov/2006:10:57:49 +0100] “GET /favicon.ico HTTP/1.1”

Thanks in advance for any hints.

Kind regards,


you want to use lighty or webrick for rails not apache.
and might i suggest home cooked rails. the instant stuff is for kids
