I have been playing around with Ruby on Rails on my personal system for several months learning the framework, and now I’m ready to create my first live application. However, using Rails on Dreamhost seems much more complicated than on my own linux system. I’m using passenger and have done all the setup for my databases, including editing my database.yml. But, when I try to view the site through my browser I either get an error page telling me I need Rails 2.3.2 installed on the server or, if I use the freeze command suggested in the documentation, i just get a syntax error.
But all I’ve done is create a single app and build a scaffold. There should be no syntax problem since I haven’t actually written any code myself. The same exact process will go without a hitch on my own development system.
Can anyone help me with getting started? None of the documents on the Dreamhost wiki have led me to successfully create a simple app.
