I'm on a shared host, so my default webdirectory is /home/user/public_html I've created a rails project from the book in /home/user/public_html/shovell Now the root directory of that project is /home/user/public_html/shovell/public that's where my routes.db file thinks is the root. Since I'm on a shared host I can't change the default web directory. Is there anyway to create the rails project initially so I can have the root be at /home/user/public_html ? Thanks for any help, rails is nice!
