Can't start console

rails console is generating an empty application called console rather
than launching the console. How do I get into the console. rails
server works fine by the way.

In the same window? It sure sounds like you're invoking two entirely
different versions of Rails.

You might want to provide a *little* more (as in, *any*) information
about your environment...

Are you using Rails 3? Sounds to me like you are trying to start the console by the Rails 3 way ‘rails console’ but your Rails v installed is < 3. Creating a rails app in < Rails 3 you did by ‘rails app_name’ but in rails 3 you do ‘rails new app_name’

If you want to start the console in pre-Rails 3 use ‘script/console’
