Starting a Rails server

I tried to start a Rails server and this error popped up:

It looks like an error related to sqlite. Have you installed that and confirmed it's working?

No, can you tell me how to install it?

Sorry, I'm not on Windows. Did you follow the directions here: https://blog.teamtreehouse.com/installing-rails-5-windows

Yes, I have installed Ruby+DevKit and node.js.

Hmmm, unfortunately I think your best option is to Google around and see what others have done. Here are two things I found by Googling that error message: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/5800920/error-no-such-file-to-load-sqlite3-sqlite3-native-loaderror/6126062#6126062 https://stackoverflow.com/questions/17643897/cannot-load-such-file-sqlite3-sqlite3-native-loaderror-on-ruby-on-rails

Thanks, I'll look it up. Hopefully it will help. :D
