I’m trying to work through Section 4.2 in your book, and I do get an error when I try to access the Web page, but it’s not the “Template is missing” error described in the book. Instead, I get a “Mysql::Error in SayController#hello” error message that says “#42000Unknown database ‘demo_development’.” I’m confused because I didn’t do anything that suggested that I wanted to connect to a database. Any suggestions? I can’t go on any further because, when I tried creating the hello.rhtml page that follows this section, I get the same message.
try going thru this tutorial on setting up your database - http://fairleads.blogspot.com/2007/12/rails-20-and-scaffolding-step-by-step.html
tho it speaks specifically to people using this text about backdating your versions, that gem didn’t work. It definitely will help get your db’s connected right.
