    help question myDEBUG log files in cache folder

    Good day,

    Could somebody please explain why log files named myDEBUG-999999-999999.log keep accumulating in my cache folder? Their content is:

    [17-Jun-2011 18:16:21] PHP Fatal error: Call to a member function buildTree() on a non-object in /home3/MYUSER_ID/public_html/includes/templates/MY_TEMPLATE/templates/tpl_page_not_found_default.php on line 27

    (bolded blue characters masking real names)
    Line 27 referred in the error message is:

    <div><?php echo $zen_SiteMapTree->buildTree(); ?>
    My Zen Cart version is 1.3.9h and the URL is Athens Collectibles if that helps.

    Any assistance will be much appreciated. Many thanks in advance.

    Those files are generated anytime a PHP error occurs in your ZC files. Evidently something's not working correctly when your custom page-not-found template is loaded.

    Thank you DrByte, I really appreciate the very prompt reply

    I had read previous postings about these files before starting this thread. I was actually hoping to get some guidance on where to look for correcting this error.

    Being an old stubborn donkey and not accepting defeat, I played around and came to a solution which seems to work: I deleted everything from line 27 to the end of the file and here is what it's left of it:

    PHP Code:
     * Page Template
     * Displays page-not-found message and site-map (if configured)
     * @package templateSystem
     * @copyright Copyright 2003-2005 Zen Cart Development Team
     * @copyright Portions Copyright 2003 osCommerce
     * @license GNU Public License V2.0
     * @version $Id: tpl_page_not_found_default.php 3230 2006-03-20 23:21:29Z drbyte $
    <div class="centerColumn" id="pageNotFound">
    <h1 id="pageNotFoundHeading"><?php echo HEADING_TITLE?></h1>

    <?php if (DEFINE_PAGE_NOT_FOUND_STATUS == '1') { ?>
    <div id="pageNotFoundMainContent" class="content">
     * require the html_define for the page_not_found page
    require($define_page); ?>
    <?php ?>
    I repeatedly triggered my custom "Page not found" in English and Greek and it is rendered correctly without log files being produced. I'm quite happy now.

    I know that it's not correct to change core files, but I keep a list of those I have edited and will find my way around when there is a new release.

    Just a last question please: some php files have an intended blank line at the end. I don't know the reason, but should I insert a blank line at the end of the tpl_page_not_found_default.php after my changes?

    Thanks again and have a nice day.
