rails 4: custom error pages for 404, 500 and where does the default 500 error message come from?

advertisements

Currently in production im getting this text:

500 Internal Server Error
If you are the administrator of this website, then please read this web application's
log file and/or the web server's log file to find out what went wrong.

No html in that page nothing.

Where is this code situated? I have no public/500.html or anything in that regard.

In my routes I have:

  get "/404", :to => "errors#error_404"
  get "/422", :to => "errors#error_404"
  get "/500", :to => "errors#error_500"
  get "/505", :to => "errors#error_505"

ErrorsController:

class ErrorsController < ApplicationController

  def sub_layout
    "left"
  end

  def error_404
    render :status => 404, :formats => [:html], :layout => "white", :sub_layout => "left"
  end

  def error_422
    render :status => 422, :formats => [:html], :layout => "white", :sub_layout => "left"
  end

  def error_500
    render :status => 500, :formats => [:html], :layout => "white", :sub_layout => "left"
  end

  def error_505
    render :status => 505, :formats => [:html], :layout => "white", :sub_layout => "left"
  end

end

How to make it load my custom errors always? On some errors it just throw that 2 line text coming somewhere from rails core, I want it to pickup my custom styled error pages every time! how? thx!


The Error you are experiencing is being thrown from

https://github.com/rails/rails/blob/4-0-stable/actionpack/lib/action_dispatch/middleware/show_exceptions.rb#L18-L22

This means, the code your exceptions are getting rescued by are themselves throwing exceptions. You can check your logs for text:

Error during failsafe response:

to identify what the exceptions really are originating from and thus solve your problem.
