Helo Rails 1

Does not work. I am typing what it says “rails new Mysite” but it won’t let me go to the “next” part. what is the problem? am i doinng something wrong?

also i wasnt allowed to put two L’s in the word “hel lo” when i wrote the title. it says the word " h e l l " is censored. I hope i didnt traumatise anyone by writing this… eh?

Hi @owen358,

You need to capitalize Site, like this:

$ rails new MySite

i wasnt allowed to put two L’s in the word “hel lo” when i wrote the title

That’s a known bug with Discourse (our forum software) right now, sorry for the inconvenience! Hopefully it’ll be fixed pretty soon :slight_smile:

ah ok, but now i have a different problem. yesterday it wouldnt let me click “next” today i can’t even type anything in the terminal. its just all locked. is anyone else having this problem?

@owen358 There’s currently an issue affecting some of Codecademy’s courses (including this one), the staff knows about it and should have it fixed soon :slight_smile:

@owen358 FYI the course should be back up now.

I just tried again. the first 3 steps work ok but the 4th doesnt. the link says unable to connect. my interenet connection is fine so i dont think the problem is my end.

View the Rails app in the browser by visiting http://localhost:8000.
Then click Next to find out what these commands do.

after i go back i must repeat all 3 previous steps again. I tried 4 times with the same result.

@owen358 If visiting http://localhost:8080 inside the virtual browser doesn’t work, could you please post a screenshot and link to the exercise?


not sure how to do a screenshot on my computer. il try taking a photo

also what do you mean by “inside the virtual browser”? i am clicking on th elink and its trying to open as any other web page in a different window. is the re a way of opening it within the codecademy web page? maybe im doing something wrong

i see there is a space for pasting URL on the right. i did that but now the “next” button is not highlighted and its telling me to do things. sorry but im new and have no idea what its talking about

i have no idea what any of this means…
