First: I love the guides! Number one reason I started learning Ruby on
Rails instead of sticking with PHP was because of the excellent
Now that I am a little more advanced (and I mean little) I still use
it as a reference when setting up a new rails app or writing
migrations. However, today I found an error on the Getting Started
page. I decided to set up my database.yml file with MySQL settings
instead of my normal SQLite setup. In the guide it says:
but I think it should be simply:
I tried the first one and got an error when generating scaffolding
saying I needed to 'gem install activerecord-mysql2-adapter'. I tried
that and it failed because it couldn't find a gem by that name. So I
tried 'gem install mysql' and it worked fine. Then I tried generating
my scaffolding again but it still had an error, so I changed mysql2 to
mysql and it worked.
Then I tried to figure out how to let someone know that I found this
error and noticed that the link to the github issue tracker was a bad
link. Looks like issues are no longer hosted there. Probably be good
to update that link too.
That's all. Thanks again for the great guides.
