Topic: Very frustrated new Rails user
Can someone please explain to me why this issues occurs? Yes I have googled and seen a million threads about similar problems but not definitive answer why or how it can be fixed. Here is my issue:
Setting up rails for the first time I created a new app, rails new app. At some point I decided I wanted to start over again so deleted the directory and recreated it. Now every time I run the command I get:
$rails new newsletter
Can't initialize a new Rails application within the directory of another, please change to a non-Rails directory first.
This happens in ANY directory I run 'rails new app' I do not understand why this is happening. My understanding is that rails puts everything in the new project name and changes need to be modified from there.
I also feel that I should be able to run
$rails new anything
a hundred times and not have anything to worry about, is this wrong? Can only one project be made at a time or what?
I have tried this solution and it doesnt work, there are NO .bundle files anywhere: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/7176 ther-pleas
I have also tried rvm implode and that doesn't help either, I just have to reinstall everything.
The only fix I have had is creating a new user or running the command in a VM, both less then ideal solutions.
I need to get this figured out before I can even get my feet wet
