My name is Nick and I am using codecademy to learn as much as I can. I just started the ruby on rails tutorial and it is prompting me to enter $ rails new Mysite…
After I enter this it responds with command not recognized. I am very new to all of this so I’m sure its some noob mistake I’m making but can someone please tell me what to do or how to troubleshoot this?
That’s not a proper terminal, it probably only accepts a single input
You also need to make sure you’re not entering the dollar sign (
$) with the actual command. The dollar sign represents that you enter the command into a terminal, but it’s not something you type. So make sure you’re entering
rails new MySite
without a dollar sign, and with a capitalized
S, like @ionatan suggests
