Hi i only just started trying to use ruby 3 days ago, but i got stuck 
about 1 day into my exploration. Ruby is tuff for first timers, i've 
never had to work this hard to to get up and running, but i guess it 
can't all be easy. i'm more determined now.
I'm running Uniserver3.3 WAMP package. I've been following the tut on 
the onLamp site 'cookbook'. It seems pretty good for beginners, but 
doesn't offer much in the way of troubleshooting these problems. My .yml 
file looks in order but if i change the username from root to another 
user i still get the same error, which is confusing. I don't know enough 
about ruby to troubleshoot this on my own so i've turned to your forum 
for a few pointers.
the full message appears below and it never changes no matter what i do 
to the .yml file even removing it.
Mysql::Error in Phonebook#index
Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: NO)
RAILS_ROOT: ./script/../config/..
if there is a great tutorial i should read before trying to learn ruby 
or a thread in this forum which could answer my question i've got lots 
of time to go reading, but it always feels like time wasted when you 
don't make progress. Does the error atleast indicate that ruby knows 
where the DB is? Is there another file which is being read that i'm not 
aware of(reason why the error never changes)?
