Trouble setting up Homestead development environment

I just created my SSH key in the command line, so now I have an SSH key and an SSHKey.pub in my main user directory. However, when I give the "vagrant up" command in the terminal I get "/Users/alexfalconer-athanassakos/Homestead/scripts/homestead.rb:26:in `read': No such file or directory - /Users/alexfalconer-athanassakos/.ssh/id_rsa.pub (Errno::ENOENT)". The homestead.rb and the SSH key file are both there, I'm thinking I did something wrong when setting up the SSH key?

Hi Alex,

Double check your folders setting, be sure they are pointing to the right directories


    - map: /Users/username/www/homestead

      to: /home/vagrant/www

Good luck !
