Topic: Please Help! Trying to install rails stack on a Slicehost VPS
I recently got a VPS from Slicehost and I am having a terrible time trying to get rails set up properly. I followed this tutorial on the rails wiki http://wiki.rubyonrails.org/rails/pages byBindings and I still cannot get it to work. I stopped at the part where it tells you to try your test application... because it didn't work.
I get a 403 error when I try to access http://www.ericsessions.com/home/index. It says "Forbidden
You don't have permission to access /home/index on this server."
the document root is /var/www/ericsessions.com/public/testapp/public (its got two publics b/c I'm trying to use apache w/ a vhost setup and each domain will have domain.xxx/public as its document root then I created the rails app in the document root for my vhost ericsessions.com)
I removed the index.html file.
I did chmod 755 testapp but it still returns the same error. I don't have a clue where to start. Thank you very much in advance.
