Did you start the server?

'rails s' command will start the server, then you can go to localhost:3000 on the browser.

I don't think that was the issue, I think the videos were a little misleading. The first series on installing ruby walks through installing rbenv and ruby and after I did that it worked fine. They the next Ruby series about the VM talks about installing rvm and once I did that is when it stopped working. The rvm video seemed older and I wonder if it was redundant to install them both? Either way I went back through the reinstall process for rbenv and it's working again. Thanks!
