I've been banging my head against the wall for two weeks trying to get even the most skeletal rails application running on dreamhost. I can't. I give up. I don't care if you call me a troll, or a newbie, or whatever. Has anyone gotten a rails application to work here? If you have, can I describe my setup and maybe you can tell me what i'm doing wrong?
I'm using the latest version of Rails (I updated today), I have my environment variable set to production, I've doublechecked my database info three times, I've tried redirecting routes.rb to a scaffold (a SCAFFOLD, for Pete's sake!) and it still doesn't work. I tried running it in development mode. Nothing. THE GOGGLES-THEY DO NOTHING!
The only progress I seem to have made is graduating from a "Rails failed to start properly" error to "Application Error (Rails)"
Has anyone gotten past this?
