Nginx not picking up error_page


#1

Hi,

I have an nginx setup to serve rails applications. But for some reason
it’s not picking up the error_page 400 404 /40x.html.

Here is part of the config file:

This is inside my location / {} config part

error_page 500 502 503 504 /50x.html;
error_page 404 400 403 /40x.html;

Here is the access log entry. Nginx is getting a 500 but just returning
it as is (it’s the exception description in rails). But I want it to go
to the nicer 50x.html

72.211.211.12 guy.test.com - [29/Mar/2009:18:17:46 +0000] GET /testpage
HTTP/1.1 “500” 21799 “-” “Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux x86_64; en-US;
rv:1.9.0.7) Gecko/2009030503 Fedora/3.0.7-1.fc10 Firefox/3.0.7” “-”

The error log shown no error, btw.

Bye,

Guy.

By default nginx only uses error_page’s for errors it generates
itself. If you want it to intercept errors returned by backends -
use proxy_intercept_errors/fastcgi_intercept_errors as
appropriate.
