Errors when running the local server

Hi all,

I’m running an application on my localhost, but the command “rails server” behaves very inconsistently. About an hour ago it ran well on another app, but got errors now.

According to the errors it seemed that the server began to run but the there is something missing in the library. But I’m very new to Rails so cannot figure out what do these lines mean:

129-97-231-189:rewrite liujunjun$ rails server

=> Booting WEBrick

=> Rails 3.1.3 application starting in development on http://0.0.0.0:3000

=> Call with -d to detach

=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server

Exiting

Hi all,

I'm running an application on my localhost, but the command "rails server"
behaves very inconsistently. About an hour ago it ran well on another app,
but got errors now.

According to the errors it seemed that the server began to run but the there
is something missing in the library. But I'm very new to Rails so cannot
figure out what do these lines mean:

129-97-231-189:rewrite liujunjun$ rails server

unexpected kDO, expecting $end (SyntaxError)

So what is at that line in routes.rb? If you can't see it post the
start of the file here, up to about line 15. Look carefully at it
first though to see if you can see the error.
