Well, some questions came up after read through your post.
1. Have you input "rails s" or "rails server" at your bash? I mean have you
started your rails server yet?
-- Yes, I have started the server with the "rails server" command.
Starts up OK, and can see the index page on http://localhost:3000 OK.
2. What do you mean when you generate home controller, nothing happens? No
error message in terminal and in browser?
-- There is no response at all.
3. Maybe it's your typo, but shouldn't it be "rails generate controller home
index" not "rails generate home controller index"?
-- Yes, that is my typo. Thank you for pointing it out. Have pasted in
the output from Terminal below.
