I am reading the section on Active Record in the PDF (v 10) and I decided it would be a good idea to follow along with the examples. The depot was getting a little deep for me so I was skipping around (I didn’t have the whole depot installed). I got the depot from the zipfile on pragprog.com, deleted my previous depot, dropped the tables and did a rake db:migrate. Now, when I try to go to http://localhost:3000/users/new (or any other place for that matter), I don’t get anything. I have permission denied errors in the log and it’s obvious that I don’t have any users defined since the users table is empty. However, looking through the task F chapter I don’t see anything obvious on how to create users without going through the website (which I can’t load).
Can somebody please point me to the place where I need to be reading to set up users in the depot? Maybe there is something wrong fundamentally in my approach??
