Hi All

I am sort of stuck here trying to upload data using the api. Initially when
I ran ruby script/server at rails_port I got the folowing message:
=> Booting WEBrick...
=> Rails application started on **
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options
[2008-10-13 17:26:41] INFO  WEBrick 1.3.1
[2008-10-13 17:26:41] INFO  ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11) [i386-linux]
[2008-10-13 17:26:41] INFO  WEBrick::HTTPServer#start: pid=28627 port=3000

I dont understand why it gives out I checked the
database.yml file and hostname for the development environment is set to
localhost with the correct username and password.

I tried doing some troubleshooting with environment.rb file which is like
I changed
ENV['RAILS_ENV'] = 'development' ( which was set to production before)

SERVER_URL = ENV ['OSM_SERVER_URL'] || 'yoursoftserver07.rmit.edu.au'
(This is the url for the server I am using for our project.)

I still cannot access http://localhost. It cant connect.

I created some dummy data in the database using MYSQL query browser in the
current_nodes table like node id =1, latitude =11, longitude =12, user_id
=1, visible = 1, timestamp 0000-00-00 00:00:00, tile=0

http://yoursoftserver07.cs.rmit.edu.au/api/0.5/node/1  dosent brings out

Now the ruby script/server shows the following error
[team4 at yoursoftserver07 rails_port]$ ruby script/server
=> Booting WEBrick...
=> Rails application started on
=> Ctrl-C to shutdown server; call with --help for options

        from script/server:3

I ll do some more reserach on the api. Meanwhile any sugggestions to use api
for get/put will be highly appreciated. Please excuse me if I am just
messing around and being stupid :-).
We actually have to upload our results to our development database of
openstreetmap using a mobile phone (Nokia N95)

Thanks & Regards,
