Where is the database?

If i want to get all the table data details then from where i can get that. Where is the date? And which database rails uses?

Hi there,

If you access the irb console you can query the database directly and look through its structure. The structure is also defined in schema.rb within the db folder in your Rails app.

Rails usually deploys to PostgreSQL but in development it could mysql3 or whatever you have set in your Gemfile.

I hope that helps,

Steve.
