I just inherited a Ruby on Rails web site. I don't know anything about
this topic (I do VB.NET normally). I'm so confused that I'm about to
either throw my laptop out the window or throw myself out the window....

I connected to MySQL Query Browser and added a record using an INSERT
command. But then on the web site, I don't see the new record anywhere.

And vice versa... I add a record into the web site's CMS program but
then I don't see it anywhere in MySQL.

I don't know anything about Ruby on Rails apps. Do I need to compile it
before seeing changes? or run some sort of deployment utility?

Any help would be very helpful...

You should be in production mode on your server.  I'm guessing you are
looking at the wrong db.
