Problems with Rails and no existing files

I have had som success with ROR and of course some problem.

I have managed to install Ruby on Rails partially. I can issue the
command

rails myTestApp

but the command doesn't create all the necessary files. For example I
miss dispatch.fcgi and .httaccess.

I installed Ruby 1.8.7, by compiling the source. I have installed the
RubyGem version 1.3.5 from the Ruby on Rails website

What do I miss to make rails create a project with all necessary files?

No, those aren't created, and you don't need them.

Are you getting an error while trying to run the app?

There are certainly outdated tutorials out there, unfortunately.

Ok I found one of those on Ruby On Rails website though.

URL?

Could you or someone else point me to a more up to date tutorial?

<http://guides.rails.info/getting_started.html> currently based on 2.3.3

HTH, and enjoy!
