Need help viewing my first App

Hi All,
   I am new to ROR and I am experiencing a few problems viewing my first
app. Can anyone pls help me to get my first app up and running?

I created a rails application called my_app. I created a controller
called hello.

It looks something like this.
class HelloController < ApplicationController

def display
end

end

When I type http://localhost:3000/hello/display it says "we are sorry
but something went wrong" message. I know it is looking for a view and
when I created a view called display.rhtml with text "welcome on board"
without any html tags and reloaded the browser window instead of
displaying welcome on board in plain text it again is displaying "we are
sorry but something went wrong".

can anyone pls let me know where I am going wrong?

Have a peek inside your app's development.log for a better explanation
of what is wrong (I'm guessing its something like that app is set to
use an sqlite3 database but you don't have sqlite3 (or its bindings
for ruby))

Sam, did you generate a scaffold, or a stand-alone controller?

When you go to localhost, do you see the generic ruby welcome page?
can you click on the configuration link?

Thanks folks....I was following some online tutorial and I ran into some
confusing moments...Now that I am following the documentation at
rubyonrails.org everything seems to be ok and working now.....

I'll get back if I have any more doubts...

Thanks once again for your inputs..
