I have just finished the current Ruby course and have tried to start the Ruby on Rails course, but I cannot get it to work. When I type in rails new Mysite on the command line emulator, it doesn’t recognise the command. I cannot get past the first task of the first lesson. This happened when I finished Java script and tried Angular JS. I am using IE 11 fully patched and Windows 8.1, again fully patched. The older courses work fine, but the newer ones don’t…
Try a modern web-browser. I.E. 11 is essentially deprecated by Microsoft at this point since Edge and Win 10, but it still receives infrequent security updates for those corporate environments that still rely on it. It’s easy enough to install Mozilla’s Firefox or Google’s Chrome, and you’ll be better off for it, from a security, web standards, feature, and usability perspective.
Could you please post a screenshot of what you’re seeing? The courses should work fine in IE 11.
I didn’t know that, about IE11. Thanks for letting me know. I appreciate it.
@pythonpaul Yeah, IE is being deprecated so you might want to upgrade to Edge or Firefox soon - IE 11 will still be supported for a while yet though
If you capitalize
MySite, does it work?
$ rails new MySite
yes, it works. I encountered another problem though. Typing in http://localhost:8000 in the browser. It does not give the app. Just an error page. Can you help me understand that too, please?
It’s okay zstvan, I’ve worked it out. Thanks. In the web app that appears in the browser, it states that you need to run ‘generate’ and give a route root. Are we already meant to be able to do this or have I missed a section of the lesson?
@pythonpaul Glad to hear it worked

They may have touched on it briefly, but I’m not entirely sure.
Okay, thanks for your help zystvan. Much appreciated.
