Problem when porting



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

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
Comment out the socket part of the config.



i still get the same problem

No such file or directory - /tmp/mysql.sock


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