I am new to Ruby but not to programming. I have a domain name and server
space with a host who said that ruby on rails should work on the server.
All I want to do is make sure that a test ruby application works online
so that I can begin development on an app. I am able to get the test
program to work locally but not online.
(path online = www..net/test/controllers/TestController.rb)
class TestController < ApplicationController
def index render_text "Hello Ruby" end
In config/routes.rb, i have tried all of the following:
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘test’, :action => ‘index’
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘Test’, :action => ‘index’
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘test_controller’, :action => ‘index’
map.connect ‘test/:controller’,:action => ‘index’
map.connect “test”, :controller => “Test”
At both http://127.0.0.1:3000/ and http://127.0.0.1:3000/test/, I can
get the “Hello Ruby” to display. However, I can’t get it to work on my
domain, i.e., www..net/ or www..net/test/. All that
these respective links display is the index of files and folders in
Am I missing something here, or is it my host that is missing something?
What do I have to do to get “Hello Ruby” to display at
