I am newbie, and setup RoR 3.1 on Ubuntu 11.04.
I followed everything on this blog, and the initial site came up fine
Switching to mysql and running the rails server (rails s) displays
I am pretty sure the database.yml is correct (shown later), that the
database exists, and
the user nara (myself) can access the database using the mysql client.
I have tried rebooting my machine, but that does not help.
Warning: The database defined as “test” will be erased and
re-generated from your development database when you run “rake”.
Do not set this db to the same as development or production.
