Hello, I’m not quite a newbie, but I recently began working my way through AWDwR. Previously doing tutorials and a couple small tutorials and another text Up and Running with Rails, I set up MySQL and used it via HeidiSQL, as MySQL, the suggested GUI in Curt HIbbs tutorials, was unavailable and I was able to at least make things work with it. However, there were always glitches and so in starting this book, I dumped everything and used Instant Rails to Install new versions of Ruby and MySQL.
What is happening now, as I try to start the Depot Application, is that I still am not sure what is menat by the mysqladmin commandline; simply type that into my console from that directory? tried this, and it gives me an error: ‘Access denied for user ‘create’@’localhost’ , '
using HeidiSQL, I created the DB depot_development and got the same error.
rake db:migrate works One of the reasons that I dumped everything before and started over was so that down the line, I can be sure I am using the same configurations that the text is, which has been an issue before, and though this might work as I progress, I think I’m missing something important.
Is there another place to get to mysqladmin? I want to follow along exactly like the text, I changed db.yml to the books example, removing some SQLite configuration. It seems to me that the ever-changing Ruby on Rails environment is working against me here, and though your book has done the best job at working through it all, I already see a crack in the process. Is there perhaps an exact version of Instant Rails? is 2.0 so different from 2.25?
Anyways, thanks for your time, whoever reads this, I’d appreciate some help.
