500 Error Page


#1

I have an error page defined in my .htaccess file and I’m in production
mode.

Sometimes I still get the Application Error (Rails) white page though.
In
this case there was a nil object that I tried to access in a controller
without first checking if it was nil.

How does Rails decide what error page to display and how can I get the
pretty error page to display more often?

Thanks.

Hunter-

I think what you are looking for is called rescue_action_in_public.

You can use it like this:

In application.rb

def rescue_action_in_public(exception)

Do something with exception. Either throw

a 404 or send am email to your self in here.

render :text => “My pretty 404 page. exception : #{exception }”
end

And here’s a link to more: http://wiki.rubyonrails.com/rails/pages/
