Failed to start


I’ve searched the forum for this problem (Rails applicaiton failed to
start) and all of the threads I’ve found refer the writer to the httpd
log or the fcgi log.

Is there some way to set up rails so that error messages and tracebacks
are written to the browser session in addition to the normal (useless)


I agree!

I had some “puts” statements in my code left from debugging with
WebBrick and when I ran the same code in Apache it aborted with the
“Rails application failed…” message. The apache and fcgi logs were
absolutely no help nor was the development.log.
