Application error (Apache)

Change this error message for exceptions thrown outside of an action (like in Dispatcher setups or broken Ruby code) in public/500.html


hope you can fix that.

AJAX is good, problems arise though when you are talking broad coverage as far as browsers go.
Not everyone runs Javascript on their client either. How does this degrade? Why RoR as opposed to the other app frameworks, why over ASP.NET or Java? Don't really see the point.

Good article tho.

    I've got my ISP looking at the the error from the server. Hopefully it'l be back up soon.

    Rails does provide the ability for the Ajax support to degrade gracefully when JavaScript (or XMLHttpRequest) are not available. I just didn't cover that aspect in this article.
