Upgrading from deprecated versions
Support for version 4 of our gem ended November 2016. If your app is using version or earlier, we would recommend upgrading to a currently supported version using the guide below.

Upgrade to the latest version of our gem by updating your Gemfile:

Step 2: Regenerate config
Run generate command to overwrite old Airbrake config (make sure to replace

$ rails generate airbrake PROJECT_ID API_KEY conflict config/initializers/airbrake.rb Overwrite /Users/arthur/my-app/config/initializers/airbrake.rb? (enter "h" for help) [Ynaqdhm]
