[PhillyOnRails] View Problem in Production


I finished my first RoR application last night:-)  So
I thought 'hey, time to upload my app'.  So I uploaded
my entire rails directory (the one created when you do
the 'rails myapp' command).  Nothing was working ...
so I started digging around and I immediately saw that
I had an FTP problem - the files were all corrupt.

So I ssh onto the machine and perform the 'rails
myapp' command and create a link to the public
directory so that my url goes to the index page when
you type www.mydomain.com.  Everything looks good. 
Then I start uploading a directory at a time (looks
like the FTP problem was with uploading directories
for some reason).  I do the controllers, view, etc... 
Now everything is looking real good.  But for some
reason one controller is not working properly ...
actually it looks to work but I get a strange error on
the browser.

The controller has a redirect in it:


Everything prior to this works.  But the browser keeps
displaying the following:

Application error

Rails application failed to start properly"

So I look in the log file and see the following:
Redirected to http://www.thedomain.com/thank_you
Completed in 0.16235 (6 req/sec) | Rendering: 0.00626
(3%) | 200 OK

I can go to http://www.thedomain/thank_you via the
browser - but the redirect does not seem to be
working.  I also tried to do the default view and got
the same thing (by putting a view in the send_email

Has anyone seen anything like this?  I am wondering if
I need to get past my FTP issues and find a way to
upload the entire directory structure created with the
code base.  Just seems strange to me.  Everything else
works well - database, dynamic pages, etc...
