My hunch is that it has to do with the GEM_PATH, but I'm not sure. Let me know if you solve it.
Rails and no Rails app with same account
In my case I have a domain up and running (non rails) and I'm now testing a rails app but I'm using subdomain. That is not what I want but I'm just testing.

As I understand Justin would like to use the three domains.
Also BH claims unlimited domain hosting.
Any other alternatives to get this working? This will hit me as well at some point.
If BlueHost supports one account with multiple domains (which you say it does) then you could have a different rails app for each domain, if you desired.
Then the way you set up your three Rails apps would be:
http://www.domain1.com or http://www.justin.com/app1 -> ~/public_html/app1 -> ~/rails/app1/public
http://www.domain2.com or http://www.justin.com/app2 -> ~/public_html/app2 -> ~/rails/app2/public
http://www.domain3.com or http://www.justin.com/app3 -> ~/public_html/app3 -> ~/rails/app3/public
You're still using a subdomain (the rails app itself is the subdomain which points to the public_html directory of the app) but a different domain for each subdomain rails app. The key is to set these up through the BlueHost cPanel subdomain menu.
Hope this helps.
Does not work at all...
I followed the tutorial step by step and it does not work. All I'm getting is a 404 code...
I get something - the usual Ruby welcome page - when I log on to first.mydomainname.com, but a 404 when I try http://first.mydomainname.com/first/view
It has been working perfectly for me, just follow the tutorial and be sure to read every instructions carefully.. if you make a mistake redo the steps and it will work for you eventually.

I have been having the same problem as many of the posters above -- first.mydomain.com/first/view has been returning 404 error after following the Bluehost tutorial here.
Finally, I found a solution having to do with the .htaccess file -- check it out here: http://helpdesk.bluehost.com/kb/inde...od_id=2&id=562
Very frustrating that this isn't linked from the initial RoR Setup Guide that Bluehost has, as many users (like me) would probably have benefited from it.
Where do I put this /htaccess file? If I put one in the way the helpdesk article suggested into my base public_html folder, a normal php site of mine returned a "rails failed to execute" error....
