Problem deploying app on bluehost

Hi ,
I am new to ror and deploying my first app spot.us on bluehost , I am
getting the following error :

Application error
Rails application failed to start properly

I google and found that it may have something to do with .htaccess
file. Please suggest what can be the issue

Thanks a lot
Saurabh

I get the following error logs from blue host panel can anybody please
provide a hint

Thanks a lot Roger.

Thanks a lot all for the support and inputs.

I want to know which is the best option for me to try to deploy ror
application.

I went for bluehost as they were preety cheap(42$ for an year
including a domain name ) and had many features ( shell etc).

I want to know if i can get a similar deal with better hosting
provider , can I get something good for ror applications for ard 50$
an year.

Thanks
Saurabh

I think dreamhost is similar. And hopefully easier.
