Site only showing directory after rails install

software development


I have installed rails on the domain. Followed the tutorial at the dreamhost wiki, but I’m not getting anything up after following all the steps, just a directory listing. That’s not right, is it ?


First, the directory for this site should be /home/username/

Once you do that, your site will show this page instead of the directory listing, on which appear further instructions.

If you want useful replies, ask smart questions.


Just to elaborate on what kchrist notes, in the control panel where you set up your subdomain, set the ‘Web Directory’ to ‘/home/username/’.
