hi Oliver,

I have to admit I have been waiting for you :-)

I am sorry, read all the above a couple of times (and studied the
examples), but to no avail...
I have a plugin (a ServerXplugin.php in the server directory of the
plugin folder of my project, it get's loaded (?!) with all the rubbish
inside, debug in log does not complain...
from there on it gets foggy with my object programming...

I am pretty sure the plugin does not get executed at all...

If at least/only I could get the famous line:
(map file temp save) executed and see the file saved
I think I could handle the rest

Would/could you please write down what should be the whole content of
my ServerXplugin.php to execute the mapfile save
and what do I have to do elsewhere

Sorry to bother/ask you so much,
many thanks in advance
