Rails 2

Install Exceptional in your Rails 2 app

  1. Install the exceptional gem
    $ gem install exceptional

  2. Configure your environment.rb file
    config.gem 'exceptional'

  3. Generate the Exceptional config file (config/exceptional.yml)
    $ exceptional install YOUR-API-KEY
    You will find the API_KEY in the apps settings screen within Exceptional.

  4. Delete the old Exceptional Plugin (if installed)
    $ rm -rf vendor/plugins/exceptional

  5. Test everything is working
    $ exceptional test
    You will see a test exception in your exceptional app screen

  6. Enabling Exceptional for non production rails environments
    By default Exceptional will not collect errors and exceptions for the development(default) or test rails environments (as specified by RAILS_ENV). If you want exceptional collecting errors for those environments then you must enable that environment by adding the following lines to the config/exceptional.yml file.

    e.g for the development environment

    development:
      enabled: true
