First rails hello webpage is not showing with netbeans ide 6.9.1

I tried to run my first hello application running on the netbeans ide
6.9.1,but is showing some problem with webrick server setting.

Are you just telling us that in case we are interested or are you
asking a question?

If you are asking for help then just telling us that you have a
problem is not enough information. We are not telepathic. You must
at least post the error messages you are seeing.


We're sorry, but something went wrong.

We've been notified about this issue and we'll take a look at it
Above 2 messages are coming as error message
Actually I started with new ruby on rails project with webrick netbeans
I generated one controller "say" and one view "hello".
And I changed "welcome" to map.root :controller => "say" and deleted
public/index.html file.
After that I set as main project and run the project then it shows the
above 2 messages as error
Please help me to get hello page

You need to look in the server terminal window to get more
information. I don't know how to see that using netbeans though. It
will also probably be available in the file log/development.log.

Did you look at that yourself first? It says, on line 8, that it
could not connect to the database.

I think perhaps you would be better first to follow the advice I give
to all newcomers which is first to work right through a good tutorial
(such as, which is free to use online). That will
show you the basics of rails.


Remember, we all started somewhere and were initially clueless too.

I have given database credentials for the hello application, it works

My question is "when I dont use database still is it required to give
database credentials?"
please reply

I think the accepted answer to
should work.


Thank you, In the beginning you helped a lot.

If you have any link kindly send me.


I believe the tutorial I suggested covers helpers.
Please take a couple of days and work right through the tutorial
including the exercises. That will show you the basics of rails. You
will recover that time very quickly due to your increased knowledge of
the basics.



I would like to disable mysql connection from netbeans ide 6.9.1,What
are the steps to be taken specific to ruby on rails application
You have given above link, that is not giving proper
information(ex:application.rb is not there in the jruby 1.5.1)
Please help me in this regard


Firstly this is a mailing list not a forum (though you may be
accessing it using a forum-linke interface) therefore it is important
to quote the previous email when replying, otherwise we may not know
what you are talking about. In this particular case I do not know
which link you are referring to.

However what you are asking does not make sense. Any rails
application will have a file config/application.rb, the particular
version of ruby you are using is irrelevant. I suggest you explain in
more detail exactly what the problem you are trying to solve is and
maybe someone can help.

I presume you are talking about developing with rails on Windows. My
suggestion to get round this problem is to not use Windows. Install a
linux environment (such as Ubuntu) in a virtual machine on windows or
even better (IMO) dual boot the machine into win/linux. Then develop
with rails in linux.

I know some do manage to develop on Windows but there are not many and
it will be difficult for you to get help with windows specific
