Topic: Ruby on Rails- Setting the Application Home Page
I'm following the tutorial at:
and I've got to step 4.3 Setting the Application Home Page- I've deleted the default page from my application as it said, and edited the config/ routes.rb file as indicated.
It then says that if you browse to http://localhost:3000 in your browser, you'll see "Hello Rails!", however, I'm getting an "Unable to connect" page being displayed.... I was just wondering if anyone knows why this is?
If I view the page by typing in its location, i.e. file:///D:Users/....index.html.erb, I get a page displaying "Hello Rails!".
Is it possible that some settings aren't correctly configured on my computer? Or is there something else I need to do to be able to view the page from my localhost... maybe permissions? In which case, is there any easy way to set those on a Windows machine? I've only ever done that on Unix before...
