I am on a mac. Have been developing using a manually installed
(according to the hivelogic instructions) ruby, rails, gems, mongrel
setup. Life was good.
When I noticed that my ruby version was out of date, I decided to
switch to using macports to maintain the software on my mac. I used it
to install a new ruby and gems, and then used gems to get the latest
rails. Life seemed to be good.
Next I ran mongrel to launch the app and it seems to start ok. But
when I go to localhost:3000 I get “cannot connect” from my browser.
If I create a hello world application (rails helloworld) and then go
to localhost:3000 then it does what is expected.
I suspect there is some dependency in my rails app that stopped
working on something which changed when I updated my ruby and rails
install. Here is what I know changed:
- ruby and rails are now installed in /opt./local/bin where before it
was installed in /usr/local/bin ( I have updated my path of course -
to include opt first and usr second
- ruby and rails have slightly higher version numbers. Ruby from 1.8.4
to 1.8.6 and rails from 1.2.0 (I think) to 1.2.3
However I can’t find a dependency on either of those things in my
Any hints? Am I looking in totally the wrong place?
