[maplab-users] Can't preview

Hi All,

I'm a rookie at MapLab, but experienced with Mapserver. I can't seem to 
preview a map using MapEdit -- here's what pops up:

Warning: MapServer Error in getSymbol(): (LOCAL):(19) in 
/opt/httpd/htdocs/maplab/htdocs/common/wrapper/map_session.php on line 208

Fatal error: Failed to open map file /tmp// in 
/opt/httpd/htdocs/maplab/htdocs/common/wrapper/map_session.php on line 208

I am running MapLab-2.0rc5 on RedHat Linux 7.3, with Mapserver-3.6.4, 
apache-1.3.27, php-4.2.4 running as the same user that I am. If I look 
in /tmp, I do see the temporary map file:

-rw-r--r--    1 vic      users         361 Apr  3 12:47 

Now, should the map file be in /tmp, or should it be somewhere in my 
../httpd/htdocs/.. tree? Could it be that the CGI PHP can't look in the 
system /tmp? I tried setting the temporary mapfile path to 
/opt/httpd/htdocs/tmp (my home-built apache, etc. are installed in 
/opt). Didn't work.

Any advice? I think I'm close!
