hi, simple issue i'm sure--i'm a ruby & rails nooby--but for some reason the sample app that i've been running/building from the Agile Web Dev w/ Rails book changed from a (nicely) formatted HTML page, with a link that would try to show my application status, to the text i list below--with the first line in larger typeface than the rest, but otherwise plain jane (see below). this is when i just go to: http://localhost:3000 anyone know what stupid thing i've done/changed to cause this change in behavior (from the fancy "Welcome to Rails" to the more text based message i list below--i'm guessing it has something to do with switching web servers or something, but i'm pretty sure i'm using WEBrick still; or maybe i changed some .rhtml file somewhere, or it knows i'm also occasionally using a remote server that is linux based rather than just my win xp box now, too)? any clues would be much appreciated. tia, brad Congratulations, you've put Ruby on Rails! Before you move on, verify that the following conditions have been met: The log and public directories must be writable to the web server (chmod -R 775 log and chmod -R 775 public). The shebang line in the public/dispatch* files must reference your Ruby installation. You might need to change it to #!/usr/bin/env ruby or point directly at the installation. Rails on Apache needs to have the cgi handler and mod_rewrite enabled. Somewhere in your httpd.conf, you should have: AddHandler cgi-script .cgi LoadModule rewrite_module libexec/httpd/mod_rewrite.so AddModule mod_rewrite.c Take the following steps to get started: Create empty development and test databases for your application. Recommendation: Use *_development and *_test names, such as basecamp_development and basecamp_test Warning: Don't point your test database at your development database, it'll destroy the latter on test runs! Edit config/database.yml with your database settings. Create controllers and models using the generator in script/generate Help: Run the generator with no arguments for documentation See all the tests run by running rake. Develop your Rails application! Setup Apache with FastCGI (and Ruby bindings), if you need better performance Having problems getting up and running? First try debugging it yourself by looking at the log files. Then try the friendly Rails community on the web or on IRC (FreeNode#rubyonrails).
