Well, I finally got my ruby application (www.jeremyrambo.com
) running. At the end of the previous post I was still attempting to run the application using the FastCGI. After reading several other forums I thought I would go for the easier CGI for the time being.
I continued to get a 404 Not Found error. I was frustrated, but also sure that it was on my end, so I dove into the problem head on; determined to resolve this issue and get my application up and running.
It ends up, that I had to add a single line to config/routes.rb.
map.root :controller => "home"
In this case, "home" was my application root, I could have set this to "blogs" or "albums" if I preferred.
You would not believe the relief I felt when the page first loaded up. I have since made many bugs fixes, add DB columns, etc...all on the server. I never run local anymore.
I hope that this forum will help people. I will be checking in on occasion to hopefully answer questions people may have.
Until then...good luck and happy rubying...
P.S. I'm going to continue to try getting this site up in FastCGI, if I have any luck I will post the instructions.
