In order to quickly get a web site / database application running, I decided to use ruby on rails. It is installed on my system, and I generated a project. I am using the Ruby on Rails book as a guide, but find that some of the scripts are missing from my project, ie ‘generate’. Where can I find the generate script to start modifying my project?
Second, do I really have to put the mysql root password in the database.yml file? This is a security risk. Is there a workaround to doing this?
Thanks for any help you can supply.
