Ruby on Rails 5.2 Server issues Index of / folder issue


Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have another issue that I need help resolving. I just though maybe you guys might know what causing this issue. I am getting index of / instead of my rails site. Any advice as to what might be causing it?

When I load my website the website shows the index of / that list all the folders in the public directory. While this used to work on Ruby on Rails 3.2, it doesn't work in Ruby on Rails 5.2. I want it to display my Duelingpets website instead of what it is doing currently.

I am creating this code on a new digital ocean linux droplet from scratch. I have more knowledge when it comes to Ruby on Rails 3.2. I am relatively new to Ruby on Rails 5.2. I am using an Apache 2 web server and MySQL database. I tried to follow the digital ocean documentation on the Ubuntu 18.04 guide for Apache 2 server setup. While I was able to change the conf file for sites-available to point to the public folder of the ruby file its still shows the index of / folder.

Index of /

Apache/2.4.34 (Ubuntu) Server at Port 80

Apache2 sites-available conf file:

<VirtualHost *:80>
    ServerAdmin [email protected]
    ServerName duelingpets.net
    ServerAlias www.duelingpets.net
    DocumentRoot /var/www/websites/duelingpets.net/html/Duelingpets/public
    ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
    CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined

Here is the original Apache sites-available that works with Rails 3.2 and is live:

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName duelingpets.net
  DocumentRoot /var/www/duelingpets.net/public_html/duelingpets.git/Trial/public
  <Directory /var/www/duelingpets.net/public_html/duelingpets.git/Trial/public>
    # This relaxes Apache security settings.
    AllowOverride all
    # MultiViews must be turned off.
    Options -MultiViews

<VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName static.duelingpets.net
  DocumentRoot /var/www/duelingpets.net/public_html/bascots.git
  <Directory /var/www/duelingpets.net/public_html/bascots.git>
     Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews +Includes
     AllowOverride None
     Order allow,deny
     allow from all

What I expect it to display is Yay! You're on Rails! but the actual output displays Index of / along with the contents of that particular folder.

Expected result:

Ruby on Rails
Yay! Youre on Rails!

Rails version: 5.2.1
Ruby version: 2.5.1 (x86_64-linux)
