An issue regarding http://localhost/3000/

I am new to the Ruby on Rails programming system and I just purchased
Railspace but I cannot pull up this URL needed to progress further
through the book, It is telling me it is an invalid URL, what should I
do?

I believe you have the address wrong. Shouldn't it be a colon (:slight_smile:
instead of a slash (/) between localhost and 3000?
i.e.: http://localhost:3000/

Warren,

It is -

http://localhost:3000

That's a colon, not a slash : 3000 is the port on which Rails is listening.

You meant http://localhost:3000/ with a colon, right?

The colon introduces the port number, which is :80 by default. Websites in a development mode typically run on a port higher than some number, such as 1024, because these ports have different security issues, and are up for grabs.
