I’m on step 2 and can’t find the file in the editor to open it. The bash console shows that it exists, but I can’t see it.

How did u solve?
regards 2020202

I don’t think I ever really got it working. I was kind of able to work around the issue by restarting the lesson from the step I was on, but i had similar issues with the entire rails path.

why is a database called a “model”? it’s confusing. why not just call it… um, let’s see… a hah!! call it a “DATABASE” !?

if you look at the response from the console, it says you can create the Messages model by adding “–force” onto the end of your command. That’s how I got it to work for me!
