- create a new app with `rails foo'
- set up an ODBC DSN (in this case, called
`mysql5la_rails') connecting to a database instance
wherein there is a table `tests':
create table tests (id integer primary key, str varchar(255), dob datetime);
- from the foo/ directory, edit config/database.yml
development: adapter: odbc dsn: mysql5la_rails username: me password: whatever
ruby script/generate scaffold admin tests
- point your web-browser at http://localhost:3000/admin . You should now be seeing the Webrick server running and a display of the entries in the tests table, with links to edit / delete / create new rows.
