Webrick script/server file does not exist

Hello all,
I worked fairly enough with PHP and MySQL, but am very new to Ruby.
I have Windows machine with Apache and MySQL installed previously.
Both Apache and MySql were stopped while installing Ruby.
I tried several ways to install Ruby 1.8.7 and one-step installer.
I can use Ruby with netbeans 6.0.1 with its own Ruby or with the one I
installed now.

The problem starts when I try to create web ruby application.
The command
C:\Sites> rails new helloworld
creates the bunch of directories and files:
create
create README
create Rakefile
create config.ru
create .gitignore
create Gemfile
create app
create app/controllers/application_controller.rb
create app/helpers/application_helper.rb
create app/mailers
create app/models
create app/views/layouts/application.html.erb
create config
create config/routes.rb
create config/application.rb
create config/environment.rb
create config/environments
create config/environments/development.rb
create config/environments/production.rb
create config/environments/test.rb
create config/initializers
create config/initializers/backtrace_silencers.rb
create config/initializers/inflections.rb
create config/initializers/mime_types.rb
create config/initializers/secret_token.rb
create config/initializers/session_store.rb
create config/locales
create config/locales/en.yml
create config/boot.rb
create config/database.yml
create db
create db/seeds.rb
create doc
create doc/README_FOR_APP
create lib
create lib/tasks
create lib/tasks/.gitkeep
create log

create script

create vendor/plugins
create vendor/plugins/.gitkeep

But as you can see script directory contains only one file
rails

Here is its content:

#!/usr/bin/env ruby.exe

This command will automatically be run when you run “rails” with

Rails 3 gems installed from the root of your application.

APP_PATH = File.expand_path(’…/…/config/application’, FILE)
require File.expand_path(’…/…/config/boot’, FILE)
require ‘rails/commands’

So the command
C:\Sites\helloworld\ruby script/server
to start WebRick does not work because script/server file does not
exist.

What do I do wrong? Please help

Here is the list of gems:

C:\Sites>gem list --local

The rails command line stuff changed a lot in rails 3, to start the
server you now do rails server, to start the console it’s rails console
etc.

Fred

Started from Rails 3, the syntax to start a server is:

rails server

or shorter:

rails s

Regards

You are running rails 3. The command to start the server is ‘rails
server’.

Hi,

In rails 3 the file in the script folder is called ‘rails’ and you
need to pass in server (or s) as a parameter i.e.

ruby script\rails server

Hopefully it should now work

Gary

Thank you very much. I realize it now.
