Topic: Can't access http://localhost:3000
Hey. I am having some issues setting up RoR on my laptop. I successfully set everything up on my desktop yesterday. I followed the same steps today on my laptop, but when I try to access http://localhost:3000 I get "Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at localhost:3000." Please help!
I have the following installed (manual install - not instnt rails):
- Ruby 1.8.4 (stable)
- RubyGems 0.9.0
- Rails 1.2.1
- WEBrick 1.3.1
Both PC's running Windows XP
I have been using the essential training on www.lynda.com to get started, which guided me through the install pretty thoroughly. And like I said before, everything went fine on the first system.
I created a directory (c:\sites) and created a rails project with 'rails mysite'. I am able to successfully start the server with 'script/server'. Then, when I try to load http://localhost:3000 - nothing!
Why won't this work.
