Yet another MySQL issue on WinXP

I know that my questions will NOT be answered even thogh are pretty
simple for some guru guys like you…

I hope is posted in the correct section…

Like a classic n00b I followed a video tutorial to install ruby, rails,
gem etc…Is the classic tutorial by Kevin S…

He teaches it in his MAC so some things are a bit different there…

In a step he installs MySQL and somehow he connects it to Ruby!

I could not even write in CMD mysql -version and get an answer… Finally
I did it by reading another topic in the forum…

But I still get error when I try to browse my project…
“We’re sorry, but something went wrong.”
“We’ve been notified about this issue and we’ll take a look at it
shortly.”

I attached the development log…

It says something about sqlite… Probably it tries to find something
different than mysql?

How to I make knows that it needs mysql?

I am curious if someone can make a noob like me to get this work!

Good luck!

If you’re using mysql, you should have the following in your
config/database.yml:

development:
adapter: mysql
server: localhost
user: [your username]
password: [your password]
database: [database name]

Rails uses sqlite3 by default so if you don’t have it your app won’t
start
properly.

I just recreate a new my_app project like this…

rails my_app -d mysql

So in the database.yml was those…

MySQL. Versions 4.1 and 5.0 are recommended.

Install the MySQL driver:

gem install mysql

On Mac OS X:

sudo gem install mysql – --with-mysql-dir=/usr/local/mysql

On Mac OS X Leopard:

sudo env ARCHFLAGS="-arch i386" gem install mysql –

–with-mysql-config=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config

This sets the ARCHFLAGS environment variable to your native

architecture

On Windows:

gem install mysql

Choose the win32 build.

Install MySQL and put its /bin directory on your path.

And be sure to use new-style password hashing:

http://dev.mysql.com/doc/refman/5.0/en/old-client.html

development:
adapter: mysql
encoding: utf8
reconnect: false
database: my_app_dev
pool: 5
username: root
password:
host: localhost

Warning: The database defined as “test” will be erased and

re-generated from your development database when you run “rake”.

Do not set this db to the same as development or production.

test:
adapter: mysql
encoding: utf8
reconnect: false
database: my_app_test
pool: 5
username: root
password:
host: localhost

production:
adapter: mysql
encoding: utf8
reconnect: false
database: my_app_production
pool: 5
username: root
password:
host: localhost

I just set a password and the database I made it “test”…

I think I am missing something on the comments that says about mysql
installation on windows…

#Install MySQL and put its /bin directory on your path.”

It means to put the “D:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.1\bin” in
what path?

THanks!

PS I attached a new log that may helps!

Please follow this tutorial:

http://blog.mmediasys.com/2009/07/06/getting-started-with-rails-and-mysql/

has been created for people getting started with Ruby and Rails on
Windows.

Also, you need to use MySQL 5.0, not 5.1, since the mysql Ruby
bindings are going to fail, read the post details.

HTH,

Thanx man for the help!

I m going right now to read it!

Thanx again so much!

Let me notice some things that may are not right…

THose are my install dirs…

Hello again!

I just wanted to say thank you one more time!

I followed the link and everything was so clear! I managed to get it
work!
