No route matches [GET]"/cars" lesson 2.4


I think I have everything installed correctly. I did have the sqlite3 problem, but have fixed it with a solution in the forum. Now when I run the server it listens and I’m able to go to http://localhost:3000/cars but then my Firefox browser spits out the error
No route matches [GET]"/cars"

I have already done the rails db:migrate before turning on the server.
Below is the code that appears in my terminal when this happens:

=> Booting Puma
=> Rails 5.2.2 application starting in development 
=> Run `rails server -h` for more startup options
Puma starting in single mode...
* Version 3.12.0 (ruby 2.6.0-p0), codename: Llamas in Pajamas
* Min threads: 5, max threads: 5
* Environment: development
* Listening on tcp://
Use Ctrl-C to stop

I would guess the scaffold command didn’t work properly. Try running it again and let us know what the output is.


i was running into the same problem but was able to get through.
run pwd to make sure you are on my_first_rails_app
on the terminal run code . This will open up your code editor. i’m using visual studio code.
expand the config folder in the file list at the left-hand side of the screen. One of the files inside the folder will be named routes.rb. Open routes.rb and change it to Rails.application.routes.draw do
root ‘cars#index’
resources :cars


That worked!!! Thank you so much. @kikunti ++
