Instant Rails on XP sp1 setup issue

work.

For starters, let's try something a little more direct in order to narrow down the problem. Don't start mongrel from the IR manager. Open a command window from IR manager, cd into the cookbook directory, and then start mongrel manually. Make note of what ip address and port it starts on. I'm still working on the 1.3 release and starting mongrel manually brings it up on 3000. I think it starts on 3001 now (by default) through IR manager. At any rate, once it starts, open your browser using http://127.0.0.1:3000 (or whatever combination mongrel tells you it's using). Let us know what happens.

Best regards,
Bill

One thing that looks suspicious to me is that
these files in my /cookbook/public/ dir don't
have the correct path on the first line of the file:

When you unzipped IR did you, from the File Manager, start InstantRails.exe and get a dialog saying IR had moved and was going to be configured for its new location? That's where the paths should get set.

Could it be that not all my paths were set
correctly?

It is possible. Best next step would be to delete the IR directory and unzip again.

Do you know which files get
updated when you first launch IR?

If you still have a problem after redoing your install, you'd be better off asking about this is on the IR list ( http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/instantrails-users )
