map.connect '' doesn't work

Hi, got a problem with the map.connect '' in my website (I don't know
much of routes as I never really checked it).
Ok so I just want to redirect automaticaly the users to my index page
when they get to the site. So the idea is that using the address
"http://localhost:3000" using a route the user get to "http://

In my routes.rb I added:
map.connect '', :controller => 'dentistmanager', :action => "index"

So it looks like that:
ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
  map.resources :consultations

  map.resources :patients

  map.resources :doctors

  map.resources :appointments

  map.connect '', :controller => 'dentistmanager', :action => "index"
  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id'
  map.connect ':controller/:action/:id.:format'

What am I doing wrong?

Change to:

map.root :controller => 'dentistmanager', :action => "index"


Hmmm, doesn't work neither :frowning:

what errors are you seeing? did you delete the index.html file in the
public folder?

Great, I deleted the index.html in the public folder and did the
trick! Didn't knew that one, thanks a lot to the both of you for the
help ^^
