Hi, My app won' t open to localhost:3000. It only opens when I use Why is that?


Mine was the same on the Mac. It used to work with localhost:3000 but then I had to switch to using rails server -b to get it to work.

No idea why, so I hope someone can provide an answer!


Interesting, thank you. I'll try the --binding option next time I run the server.
