I am a new comer to Ruby On Rails, I allways used php to build up websites. With php I made use of MAMP and Follow up Professional to handle my database.

I must use Follow up Professional to handle my Rails database however i aren't able to find the parameters to create my Follow up Professional. Any help could be greatly appreciated.


The parameters to put it together are available in the config/database.yml configuration for that application. Automatically, Rails programs use SQLite3, and thus you'd have to swap your database.yml to using MySQL if you are attempting to use Follow up Professional:

  adapter: mysql 
  username: your_username
  password: your_password
  database: your_database

You may even have to specify a socket parameter too (underneath database, in the same indentation level). Normally, this is the situation on Ubuntu.

  socket: /var/run/mysqld/mysqld.run

After that, after that you can run rake db:create and rake db:migrate within your application's folder to produce and setup the database. In the event that works OK, then you definitely should have the ability to connect with it using Follow up Professional and also the qualifications that you simply joined to your config/database.yml file.
