Handling MySQL Connection failures

Hi all,

Hopefully a quick question for someone. This morning we had our
database server go down and that caused out Rails app to just spit out
“Application Error” to all access. Is there a way to catch the
exception for the mysql connection failure to allow a redirect to a
static page?

Thanks

With rails 1.2, i believe in case of ANY error, rails would display
500.html page from /public directory, so you can design that page to
look better and avoid “Application Error”.
