when creating a new controller the file name of the controller has to be the same as the controller itself and it can be either xxxxx_controller or just xxxxxx
mytest_controller.rb – ok
mytest.rb – ok
mytest_co.rb – not ok
also make sure you add ::BASE after the class name definition or you will get a horrifying error… well not horrifying but at least not the result you are expecting.
As always, this applies to WINXP – LAMP – ROR installation
