Topic: Instant Rails Windows MySQL lost connection fix
figured i'd throw it up here, spent the last couple hours working it out. what was especially cruel was that i was able to get the cookbook app running, but when i went to scaffold my first controller the db connection broke.
here's where you get the fix -> http://www.vandomburg.net/pages/mysql-ruby-windows
you have to replace a file in your install with one he (roderick van domburg) wrote, then install a seperate copy of MySQL on your box in order to compile a new libmysql.dll and put that in your ruby/bin directory.
worked for me anyways.
