Hi, I’m fairly a noob to rails, and just trying to grasp the entire

Ok, so let me tell you what I am doing so that you can understand. I

Ok, so that is created. Then I create a scaffold to save time from
having to create the model, view, and controller. And I create it

description (course description) as text, and course_num (to locate
the course faster in the db) as an integer.
prompt>script/generate scaffold courses \
title:string description:text course_num:integer
And then I hit enter. It generates my model, view, and controller for
me, so then I fire up Mongrel.

I get the error. I just cannot figure it out. I’ve created another app
with different names, bla bla bla, and it worked fine. Its just got me
If someone could help me get some insight on the issue, it’d be much
