Problem when porting


#1

Hello,

I am a total beginner when it comes to rails and would like to know are
there any issues with porting rails from freebsd to windows?
This is the error that I have

Bad file descriptor - /tmp/mysql.sock

I am not sure if this would help or not but I am currently on a cygwin
environment

thanks if anyone can help

I’m not sure if socket-based MySQL runs on Windows… have you tried
changing your database.yml file to point to localhost at port 3600
instead?
Comment out the socket part of the config.

I also downloaded some sameple code from agile web development rails
book
and I still get the same problem. Has anyone had any issues with
cygwin
and rails?
