Windows /RailsInstaller- Webrick starts but welcome page doesn't load

I’m trying the RailsInstaller to get ROR installed on Windows…
everything
was going great(rake db:create/migrate and console working as expected)
until I started the server, webrick starts but the welcome page never
loads,
no errors are displayed at all it just sits there forever, I looked at
the
logs and there are no errors there either

Here is my configuration
Windows 7
Rails 3.0.4
Ruby 1.8.7
Mysql2

Do any of you have any ideas or suggestions

Thanks in advance!

Post the terminal output when you start webrick.
How are you attempting to view the welcome page?

Have you compared it carefully against a working run of webrick?

I simply go to http://localhost:3000/ and then nothing… the server doesn’t
show anything, the logs don’t show anything either. I tried removing the
index page expecting to get a route error but nothing…
Just looking for ideas of what should I look at…

Does the browser hang forever or say that it cannot access
localhost:3000?

Good idea, I will carefully compare it against a working one tonight.
The browser just hangs, trying to load until I stop the server.

Thanks for your help… I will take a look later…
I just thought somebody might have had this problem before :wink:

Thanks for your help.

I finally found the issue, mysql2 is causing the server to hang, I can
run
migrations and get to the console just fine but for some reason the
server
just hangs.

Using mysql for now.

The fact that it hangs and then (I assume) says host not available

The fact that it hangs and then (I assume) says host not available
when you stop the server means that in some sense it has ‘got through’
to the server and rules out basic access to localhost problems (such
as one might get with a misconfigured firewall).
