Topic: Rails script/server error

I am using ubuntu feisty fawn and I installed ruby and rails using this tutorial here

Whenever is try and start my application this is the error i get.
The application used to work just fine in edgy eft.

=> Booting Mongrel (use 'script/server webrick' to force WEBrick)
=> Rails application starting on
=> Call with -d to detach
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server
** Starting Mongrel listening at
** Starting Rails with development environment...

Is there something wrong I am doing ??

Re: Rails script/server error

Does the WEBrick server get started?

Re: Rails script/server error

Both Servers seem to start (webrick and mongrel) . but then they exit and throws up the error

Re: Rails script/server error

Usually this error message means there is some gem that the app requires which you don't have installed. Check out the environment.rb file and make sure all required gems are installed on your system.

Reinstall rails.

Re: Rails script/server error

Thanks for all your replies. I checked and installed activerecord and actionmanager all over again and It worked.
