[Instantrails-users] Configure Database not working

I discovered what went wrong. I unzipped InstantRails into an existing c:\InstantRails folder, thus resulting in c:\InstantRails\InstantRails. When I  realized what I had done, I renamed the mother InstantRails, then moved the daughter InstantRails directly under c:. 

So I re-unzipped the files directly under c: (after deleting the existing c:\InstantRails). 

It works. 

Thanks much!

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:
