smarty error

Postby gunkel » Tue Jul 17, 2007 4:49 am

Our site has been up and running for almost a year without any trouble. This morning I go to make a few minor alterations to the content of the homepage by editing the information through the Journal Manager login. After making the changes, I hit "save and continue." Then I get the following error message. In fact, I get this message for every URL I enter into my brower's address block:

Fatal error: Smarty error: the $compile_dir '/home/zizekstu/public_html/cache/t_compile' does not exist, or is not a directory. in /home/zizekstu/public_html/lib/smarty/Smarty.class.php on line 1095

Clearly something is screwed up. But since I did not change anything other than the content on the homepage, I cannot seem to figure out what went wrong. Any thoughts?

David.

Fixed

Ignore the previous post. The problem has been fixed. There was something wrong with the permissions on the directory "cache." Although the directory was listed as having the correct permissions, for some reason I needed to reset the permissions. I've never encountered this problem before, so I assume it is a product of this particular web host's (ipowerweb.com) installation.

Thanks,
David.
