Ruby Build a Simple Ruby on Rails Application Getting Started with Rails Generate a Rails Application

Unable to have results in Sublime Text 2

Everything works perfectly well until the point after I exit the Rails Server. I exit the server with "ctrl + c" and then when I go to enter "rails generate scaffold status:name content:text" I receive this output instead of that displayed in the video...

Would greatly appreciate anyone's help or input I've been working on trying to find a solution for a couple hours now.

Thank You,

I think you have to do

Rails generate scaffold status name:string content:text

FacePalm. Thanks man, I was looking at this last night when I realized I skimmed on the exact code.

Much Appreciated!

No problem man. I've had those times where I've been stuck on problems for days. Keep going, and don't give up!

Really appreciate the encouragement brother, thanks!
