Magento Fatal Error – Don’t Panic

By In Advice, Platforms, Website Development On 05/10/2012

If you get an error that looks like this on the front end of your Magento installation – at the top of the page:

Fatal error:  spl_autoload() [<a href=’function.spl-autoload’>function.spl-autoload</a>]: Class Zend_Log could not be loaded in /home/corporat/public_html/app/code/core/Mage/Core/functions.php on line 247

Don’t panic, it’s just a session / disk quota issue…

The solution is to simply navigate to your session folder located here: public_html/var/session/ with an FTP client and delete all the session files found in there. Sorted.
