Not sure how to turn error reporting on as I am new to the php.ini for php5 (there seems to be quite a few instances of error_reporting () help!
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ; Error handling and logging; ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;; ; error_reporting is a bit-field. Or each number up to get desired error ; reporting level ; E_ALL - All errors and warnings (doesn't include E_STRICT) ; E_ERROR - fatal run-time errors ; E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR - almost fatal run-time errors ; E_WARNING - run-time warnings (non-fatal errors) ; E_PARSE - compile-time parse errors ; E_NOTICE - run-time notices (these are warnings which often result ; from a bug in your code, but it's possible that it was ; intentional (e.g., using an uninitialized variable and ; relying on the fact it's automatically initialized to an ; empty string) ; E_STRICT - run-time notices, enable to have PHP suggest changes ; to your code which will ensure the best interoperability ; and forward compatibility of your code ; E_CORE_ERROR - fatal errors that occur during PHP's initial startup ; E_CORE_WARNING - warnings (non-fatal errors) that occur during PHP's ; initial startup ; E_COMPILE_ERROR - fatal compile-time errors ; E_COMPILE_WARNING - compile-time warnings (non-fatal errors) ; E_USER_ERROR - user-generated error message ; E_USER_WARNING - user-generated warning message ; E_USER_NOTICE - user-generated notice message ; ; Examples: ; ; - Show all errors, except for notices and coding standards warnings ; ;error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE ; ; - Show all errors, except for notices ; ;error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE | E_STRICT ; ; - Show only errors ; ;error_reporting = E_COMPILE_ERROR|E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR|E_ERROR|E_CORE_ERROR ; ; - Show all errors, except coding standards warnings ; error_reporting = E_ALL ; Print out errors (as a part of the output). For production web sites, ; you're strongly encouraged to turn this feature off, and use error logging ; instead (see below). Keeping display_errors enabled on a production web site ; may reveal security information to end users, such as file paths on your Web ; server, your database schema or other information. ; ; possible values for display_errors: ; ; Off - Do not display any errors ; stderr - Display errors to STDERR (affects only CGI/CLI binaries!) ; On or stdout - Display errors to STDOUT (default) ; ; To output errors to STDERR with CGI/CLI: ;display_errors = "stderr" ; ; Default ; display_errors = Off ; Even when display_errors is on, errors that occur during PHP's startup ; sequence are not displayed.
