Try using a debugger, a print_r or echo statement near this line:
> $oExtents = $oShape->bounds;
to see what extents are being set. Are the parcel attribute in your dbf
file and the mapfile layer name the same as those in the code? You
could also check that the bounds of your shapefile fit within the map
In your error message, where you have "etc" it would be helpful to know
to which code it was referring.
Also, I don't think this is related to your problem, but Maplab 2.0
isn't designed to work with Mapserver 4+. You need at least version
2.1RC3 for that.
