To create custom error pages in Phalcon, you need to follow these steps:

  1. Create a directory named “errors” in the views folder of your project.
  2. Inside the “errors” directory, create the following files: 404.volt: This file will be displayed when the requested page is not found. 500.volt: This file will be displayed when there is a server error.
  3. In your project’s bootstrap file, add the following code to register the view component: $di->setShared('view', function () { $view = new PhalconMvcView(); $view->setViewsDir('../app/views/'); return $view; });
  4. Create a new class named “ErrorController” that extends the “PhalconMvcController” class. This controller will handle all errors in your project. namespace MyAppControllers; use PhalconMvcController; class ErrorController extends Controller { public function show404Action() { $this->view->pick('errors/404'); } public function show500Action() { $this->view->pick('errors/500'); } }
  5. Add the following code to your project’s router to send error requests to the “ErrorController”: $router->notFound(array( 'controller' => 'error', 'action' => 'show404' )); $router->add('/error/show500', array( 'controller' => 'error', 'action' => 'show500' ));
  6. Finally, create a .htaccess file in your project’s public folder (if not already existing), and add the following code to redirect all error requests to the “ErrorController”: ErrorDocument 404 /error/show404 ErrorDocument 500 /error/show500


That’s it! Now, whenever there is a 404 or 500 error, your custom error pages will be displayed.
