$this->set(‘authuser1’, $this->Auth->user());
into AppController my Error Debug does’nt work… I get this:

An Internal Server Error Occurred


If i commented this, it works.

Can someone help me?


Do you have an error controller? Does it extends AppController?

AFAIK Error controller does not load any component by default (including Auth) so you try to access Auth in beforeRender and is not loaded, php throws a “Cant get property user of null” exception

You might want to load AuthComponent in you ErrorController or add an if to check if Auth is loaded (or a try?)
