Command not recognized / Ruby on Rails

Hello Everyone,

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?


capitalized s

That’s not a proper terminal, it probably only accepts a single input

Hi Nick,

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 :slight_smile:
