[root :to => "home#index"] not working

I have done the changes in the file config/routes.rb as mentioned in the
Rails Guides tutorial, but when I try to open:

http://localhost:3000

the page is not opening. It is giving error.

Try this ?
http://localhost:3000/home

Not working.

your server is running properly?

If you can able to put the total error page, then we know what is the exact error.

What’s the error? What do you see when you run rake routes on the command line? Need more information.

No view 'index' in controller 'home'

jst delete ur index file from public directory…
it works…

Deleted the index file but it is still giving error:

Could not connect to remote server.

... which sounds like your server isn't running :slight_smile:

But it was showing "Welcome Aboard" message. How to initialize server?

What is the error message you got, when you delete the index file ?

I have solved the issue. When it showed "Welcome Aboard", I press
CTRL+C, which stopped the server. I again started it using command:
rails server

This time I am keeping the command prompt screen open.

Your mean is that you shutdown the rails server when you browser your application of rails ?

No need to embarrass the guy/gal further, no doubt he is embarrassed
already. At least he owned up to his mistake and did not just
disappear into the ether.
