I tried Hostgator, but their instructions date from 2004 and although
they have clued me in on some problems, for example the rails address
is domain/app/public, I am no longer making progress.

I tried to create a demo application from hostgator cpanel. I screwed
up and now I can't restart this demo. It seems there is a mongrel
server already running at the address. Somehow the cpanel started
mongrel, and the hostgator support told me I had broken a rule by
starting mongrel on their host site!

So is there a host out there that will support rails, who would be
helpful with instructions on what to do to get rails to work on their
hosting service? I just need to put the site on line for a few weeks
to get some data to continue to develop the application. Maybe 50
users in 2 weeks.

Buying a slice seems expensive for what I will get out of it.

Hostgator tried to set me up but they are getting an error message.
The application works on my mac.
Could it be a problem with gem version?

Here's the error from myapp6
that's causing it not to run:

Anne,

How much is your time worth to you? You might give us a whirl:
