I tried posting this once but had problems with Google Groups.
Hi, I watched the rails screencast on creating a blog in 15 minutes. I followed along got it working on my home PC and I then uploaded it to my web host. So I have,
I had to change some config in the blog app (i.e. production mode, db settings).
I then created a directory…
And a symlink to point to my blog app…
ln -s ~/blog/public ~/public_html/bor
I deleted the blog/public/index.html and I modified blog/config/ routes.rb to contain the following line:
map.connect ‘’, :controller => ‘blog’, :action =>‘index’
I did that so when someone goes to mysite.com/bor/ they would get directed to what is the index action in my blog_controller.
Ok, so things are working and I can see my blog posts when I go to, mysite.com/bor/ Now if I click on post I get redirected to mysite.com/bor/blog/show/1 …and from that page if I click “back” I end up at mysite.com/bor/blog/list …basically all the links look like mysite.com/bor/blog/ instead of what I hoped to see, mysite.com/bor/.
If it helps, my blog_controller.rb has the following method for the “index” …
def index list render :action => ‘list’ end
