I have installed SilverStripe and begun bulding my website. Every now and then (when I first go to my site for the day) I get this message:
Warning: scandir(/kunden/homepages/44/d244428573/htdocs/faithchapel/Faith Chapel) [function.scandir]: failed to open dir: No such file or directory in /homepages/44/d244428573/htdocs/faithchapel/sapphire/core/ManifestBuilder.php on line 272

After a moment, the site comes up under the warning message. If I refresh the page, the warning disappears and the site comes up normally. I've gotten the warning sometimes when I login to the admin as well.

Does anyone know what needs to be fixed. Thanks.

check whether all your directories are in 777, or check whether is there any unwanted files on the server too.

to mare the files to 777 in linux use the following

chmod -R 777 foldername
