    I'm having serious issues getting Ruby on rails working with mySQL.

    I'm tried numerous tutorials to trying to install both mySQL and RoR and getting them to play nice. I did this tutorial here and here but for some reason I can't them to work...

    after I install everything and get the mysql instance running i do this.

    $ cd desktop
    $ rails -d mysql demo
    $ cd demo
    $ ruby script/generate controller say index
    $ ruby script/server
    now by default when I go to http://localhost:3000/say I should see a little message saying where I am but I keep on getting a error message.

    Anyone have a straight forward tutorial to getting ruby on rails and mysql running for 10.5.7?

    EDIT: FYI I was trying to use mySQL 5.1.... if that even matters.
