Error with Simple Action Controller

I am new to Ruby on Rails and trying to set up a super simple database.

I am getting a


ActionController::UnknownFormat in ProfilesController#index

ProfilesController#index is missing a template for this request format and variant. request.formats: ["text/html"] request.variant: [] NOTE! For XHR/Ajax or API requests, this action would normally respond with 204 No Content: an empty white screen. Since you're loading it in a web browser, we assume that you expected to actually render a template, not… nothing, so we're showing an error to be extra-clear. If you expect 204 No Content, carry on. That's what you'll get from an XHR or API request. Give it a shot.


error and am unsure what is going on. I tried researching but I can not tell what I am doing wrong.

#profiles_controller.rb:

class ProfilesController < ApplicationController
def index
@profiles = Eprofiles.all
end
end


#routes.rb:

Rails.application.routes.draw do
# For details on the DSL available within this file, see http://guides.rubyonrails.org/routing.html
get 'welcome', to: 'pages#home'
get 'profiles', to: 'profiles#index'
end

#eprofiles.rb

class Eprofiles < ApplicationRecord
end

Answer

The error is self explanatory

ProfilesController#index is missing a template for this request format and variant. request.formats: ["text/html"]

This means you don't have file app/views/profiles/index.html.erb.
