I just upgraded to 1.1 and I am now getting the wsod for errors that used to display on the screen. E.G. NoMethodError gives wsod. Does any one know what caused this and how I can go back to the previous behavior?

Just a thought, since the only time I had the WSOD was when my hard drive inadvertently got full and I hadn't realised. Though if the rest of your app is working OK, I'm not quite sure what to suggest. What do your log files say? ~Dave -- Dave S.

Dave, Thanks for the reply. The rest of the app works fine, and I have plenty of HD space. Let me mention that this app is in development, so it's not as if some code that was working is now not working; it is all new code. I get the wsod when I test a piece of flawed code, the problem is that I am getting the wsod instead of an error message in the browser, which is what used to happen. I must confess that it is driving me a bit batty. It is acting like it is in production mode, but I am sure that it is not (there is no production database). The errors in the log show what the problem is, and when I correct it the problem the app works fine, until I write another bit of flawed code, and then another wsod instead of a error message in the browser.

Sorry, I'm not sure I know what's going on, but perhaps this thread helps: http://thread.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.rails/31033 In particular, maybe: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.lang.ruby.rails/31144 I take it you've done the usual restart (of your local server) and so on? ~Dave -- Dave S.

Dave, Thanks again for taking an interest. The links you forwarded do not quite apply. I am only seeing the wsod when I have a real error in my code. Once I fix the error, the wsod goes away. The error is usually a syntax error. My problem is that I am getting a wsod instead of seeing the error in the browser window. This means I must tail the log file and hunt through reams of log to find what used to print nicely on the screen. Why is it no longer displaying on the screen? What can I do to fix it? Thanks again, steve
