Lesson 2- 2/7 No migration file

For 2.Model 2/7, I did the first step of “rails generate model Message” and the course checked me off, but when it asked my to change the migration file, I could not find the file. I went to db/migrate but all I found were the development.sqlite3 and seeds.rb files in the folder. Was I supposed to make the file? Am I looking in the wrong place. I refreshed and logged out multiple times as well as checked the other directories just to make sure, but still nothing. Does anyone know what i’m doing wrong/missing here?

rails generate model Message generates it, see:

$ tree db
db
└── seeds.rb

0 directories, 1 file
$ rails generate model Message
Running via Spring preloader in process 25756
      invoke  active_record
      create    db/migrate/20160821174828_create_messages.rb
      create    app/models/message.rb
      invoke    test_unit
      create      test/models/message_test.rb
      create      test/fixtures/messages.yml
$ tree db
db
├── migrate
│   └── 20160821174828_create_messages.rb
└── seeds.rb

1 directory, 2 files

Was the generate command not successful? You could destroy it and generate it again, make sure to check the output.

Yeah I reset the exercise generated it again and looked through the folder. I think I just missed it when it was generated because the folder wasn’t open after it was generated. Thanks for you help.
