Response to: ActiveRecord error?

I just got on board with this tutorial and I'm having trouble with the password hash/invalid error. I ended up using the quick fix by resetting the root password to nothing but I'd rather know how to fix it so that users can have passwords. Little help?

    If you're using a recent version of MySQL 4.1.x and the most recent version of rails, then passwords should work without any problems. Otherwise, you'll need to read up on the issue:
