Request

Parameters: {“name”=>“paco”, “commit”=>“Login”, “password”=>“12345”}

Show session dump


:user_id:
flash: !map:ActionController::Flash::FlashHash {}

Response
Headers: {“cookie”=>[], “Cache-Control”=>“no-cache”}

very strange. attached is my model/user.rb file. I did another test,
to try to use a wrong username, i got a response saying “Invalid user/
password combination”

So, looks like the

def self.encrypted_password(password, salt)
string_to_hash = password + “wibble” + salt
Digest::SHA1.hexdigest(string_to_hash)
end

string_to_hash gives me error !

Please help or point me to the right direction to solve this
issue…otherwise, i can not proceed with the rest of the
chapters…

I am using Window XP and InstantRails to develop this application,
using MYSQL.

your help is greatly appreciated !
thks
