How do you change the spelling of an attribute created when using the scaffold command?

I accidentally wrote "desription:text" instead of "description:text" when using the scaffold command on this video. Is there an easy way to change/edit the spelling without having to start over and re-migrate the databases?

Hi Zack,

You can revert scaffolding by typing: "rake db:rollback" to delete migration tables and then "rails destroy scaffold todo_list", this will help to destroy all the folders. After that, you can generate scaffolding again with correct description.

Hope that helps.
