Can't access rails app running on port 3000
I want to start up my rails application I cloned from github.
I tried running ‘rails s’ and everything seems to be working ok as you can see below…
:/home/rails# rails s => Booting WEBrick => Rails 4.2.1 application starting in development on http://localhost:3000 => Run `rails server -h` for more startup options => Ctrl-C to shutdown server [2015-06-15 04:18:49] INFO WEBrick 1.3.1 [2015-06-15 04:18:49] INFO ruby 2.2.1 (2015-02-26) [x86_64-linux] [2015-06-15 04:18:49] INFO WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=26394 port=3000
However, when I go to the
http://"MY_IP_ADDRESS":3000/ in my browser, It can’t be accessed.
I can only go to the root address which is
http://"MY_IP_ADDRESS"/ but it would show me the default rails html page not my application.
I even tried replacing my cloned github app to
/home/rails still no hope. still the default page.
Can anyone help?
