No Connection Thru http://localhost:3000


I’m new to ROR so I’m hoping I’ve found the right forum. My problem is
that when I set up my ROR environment and direct my browser to
http://localhost:3000, I get the following page:

[Replace this File!

This is the default index.html file being served out of the www

You should replace this with something more appropriate.]

Dell Precision Workstation 670
Windows XP Pro 5.1.2600 Service Pack 2 Build 2600
InstantRails (installed at C:\InstantRails)
RubyGems 1.0.1 (wasn’t sure if included in IRails so installed via “ruby
setup.rb” prompt and ran successfully)

When I test the mongrel development and production servers (

-I’ve tried restarting the servers
-verified the http.conf file is for port listening for localhost at 3000

I’m not quite sure what to do next to resolve this issue. I would
appreciate any help offered or a point in the right direction.

Delete the file, and point one of your routes to
your starting controller. Maybe your login/account signup?

Each new rails project includes an index.html in the public
directory. You need to remove it or replace it. If you are going to
redirect / to one of your routes (almost guaranteed), you need to
delete it. If not, just replace it with something more appropriate
for your project.
