Rails no longer runs


I have happily used cloud9 now for several month s on a rails app

Then this week I cannot run the project any more. It fails to load.

I get the message

“Expected string default value for ‘–rc’; got false (boolean)”

I am passing nothing to rails to the best of my knowledge.


It is possible you have some code error in your code which prevents the Rails server from starting.


Full message is below.

Code runs on my development server; I am puzzled when it says rails new when all I am doing is saying run the app under the Run project with the default rails with nothing set anywhere

Expected string default value for ‘–rc’; got false (boolean)

The ‘rails new’ command creates a new Rails application with a default
directory structure and configuration at the path you specify.

You can specify extra command-line arguments to be used every time
'rails new' runs in the .railsrc configuration file in your home directory.

Note that the arguments specified in the .railsrc file don't affect the
defaults values shown above in this help message.

rails new ~/Code/Ruby/weblog

This generates a skeletal Rails installation in ~/Code/Ruby/weblog.
See the README in the newly created application to get going.
