The only thing I can think of is that something is messed up in your apache
config file. Try unzipping a fresh copy of Instant Rails into a new
directory, start that new copy of Instant Rails, and the try using
"Configure >> Database" *before* doing anything else.

Also, I was able to run the cookbook sample application.

This is a known problem with a workaround. See the FAQ:
