Unable to get to rails console


I’m working on the rails tutorial and generally have had no problems. Now, out of nowhere, I am unable to get to the rails console when I type in rails console in a terminal window. I have the server running, my current directory is the app root directory… so I’m lost as to why I’m having a problem.


I think the problem had to do with the version of the Spring gem I was using. I had just used what was in the book; version 1.1.3. That worked perfectly fine… until it didn’t. No clue why it stopped working. Anywho, I changed it to the latest version - 1.6.1 and now I can load the console.
