Error message


#1

I have this app where people can build a profile full of various kinds
of data. The first page that they see when they create their profile is
a page named ‘new’. If you add an id number for the company you work for

  • one that is already know by the user - it automaticaly fills in your
    company address information for you. Everything works fine, but I just
    happen to be looking at my logs and I see that everytime the ‘new’ page
    is visited it is throwing some kind of error:

Everything seems to be working fine, the profile get created and the
company address gets saved but I would like to make it so that this
error is not thrown. I imagine that this is a routing issue, but I
honestly am not certain of that. Anyone have any ideas about what is
happening and how to stop it from throwing these errors? Thanks,

You probably want to let the static assets like javascript files be
served directly by the front-end. For example, in the Apache
configuration you could put:

These directories should always be served up by Apache, since

they contain static content. Or just let rails do it.
ProxyPass /images !
ProxyPass /stylesheets !
ProxyPass /javascripts !
ProxyPass /favicon.ico !

Of course, if the file javascripts/default.js doesn’t exist (which
might be another reason), you just want to find and remove the:
javascript_include_tag :defaults
from your layout. If you have ‘defaults’ instead of :defaults, then
just change it to a symbol and it will do the right thing.

That was the issue, I had “defaults” instead of :defaults.

Thanks Rob,
