Logs show 404 errors with promaps files, even though it works

Hi there

I have an operational map, configured as I like. However, according to my stats, there are two few missing files that are being looked for. in addition, the Safari activity monitor shows that they are not found. Specifically

1. /_promaps_cache/_promaps_geocache.xml
2. /google_javascript/promaps_geocache_.js

Neither of these files exist anywhere in my testing server, the source code for the site, or my live server. Are these files supposed to be there? If so, how can I generate them?

The xml file stores all addresses that are geocoded, so next time you preview the map, we don't have to geocode, which make it faster to preview the map. The xml file is only generated if you have a server side langauge site such as PHP, ASP, or ColdFusion. If you are you using an HTML site, the xml file is not generated, but you can create an empty xml file and save it in the _promaps_cache folder. This should clear the error that you are receiving in the Safari error counsel.

If you need more help, please submit a support ticket to further assist you.
