No route matches "/home/index" with {:method=>:get}

I followed a tutorial to learn ruby on rails at
http://guides.rubyonrails.org/v2.3.8/getting_started.html
After creating a view and controller as “script/generate controller
home index” and then i changed the contents of app/view/home/
index.html.erb file according to tutorial into one line as

Hello, Rails!

                 Now i started the server as script/

server(successfully started) and when i navigate to localhost:3000/
home/index, i got a error message which says

ROUTING ERROR
No route matches “/home/index” with {:method=>:get}

Please someone help to resolve.

Thanks

Remove the /public/index.html file in your app directory.
Check to see if you have a route for root in your routes.rb file.
If not, make it
map.root :controller => “home”
If you still have problems, post the contents of your routes file.

Also verify that you are actually using Rails 2.3.8. Very basic
check, I
know, but routing syntax is different in Rails 3, and I don’t believe
older
syntax is supported.

I added the map.root :controller => “home” at the bottom of
router.rb file and it worked.so i could accessed now "localhost:3000/
home/index

 Please  explain how it (*map.root :controller => "home"*)  is

working (means which part calls to which).

Thanks

  I am running rails 2.3.5 and this format worked for me.

Thanks

Go through the rails getting started guides if you run into issues like
these again. Google it. The first link will get you there.
As far as the above is concerned, map.root tells the route for the root
i.e.
localhost:3000 in development or www.domain.com in production.
