Problems getting the scaffold command working properly

hello folks!!

 i am very interested in working on RoR, so what i did was to get

started on this framework. So what i did was to get hold of some
tutorials…ok let me come to the point

  1. first and foremost i created 3 databases: contact_development,
    contact_production, contact_test. In each of these databases i created
    a table called “people”. in each of these tables i entered 2 record
    sets.
    2.Then i went to c:/ruby and typed this command: rails -d mysql
    contact
  2. Next what i did is typed this command: ruby script/generate
    scaffold Person
  3. then this command: ruby script/server
  4. now, when i browse to this url: http://localhost:3000/people, it
    shows me the listing for the 2 records, however the actual values do
    not display, what i mean to say is that there r 2 rows each with show,
    edit, destroy links but not the values from the DB against them…

also in the edit and the add pages i do not get the corresponding
text boxes…however all the other buttons like “back” submit" are
there…also if i explicitly make changes in the view files then the
text boxes appear and the values get submitted to the db
correctly…

please can anyone tell me what mistake i might have made, due to

which this problem occurs? i shall be really grateful to u guys…

You don’t really wanted to be editing the database schema yourself.
That’s what migrations are fore

The issue here is that the scaffolding has changed substantially since
the tutorials you are following were written (it’s no longer a dynamic
scaffold). This has caused a certain amount of confusion but there
have been some helpful posts here and blog articles that help bridge
the gap (i’m sure you’ll be able to find them now you know what the
problem is.
The executive summary is that now you’d type something like ruby
script/generate person name:string age:integer address:string
