How to enable PHP error logging with xampp?

Postby funkybabeluba » 03. June 2010 23:04

I understand that PHP error logging is off by default in xampp, right?
So I tried to turn it on by the following entries in C:\xampp\php\php.ini:

log_errors = On
error_log = "C:\xampp\apache\logs\php_error.log"

Restarted Apache, but nothing appears in the php_error.log file.

Any suggestions?

Regards,
Arne

Hi

I hate to ask the obvious, but did you induce errors in some of your scripts? no errors - no log.

Yes I did. Errors appear on screen, but not in the log file.
I also tried to set display_errors = Off, and the errors where not displayed on the screen, as expected (so I'm using the correct php.ini file).
BTW, the error file has write permissions for all users, so that's not the problem either.
I also tried double backslashes for the file path, but it didn't help.

I'm using Windows Vista and the lastest xampp version.

Hmmmm

I tested my settings and it all worked to plan. LOL, I didn't have to induce errors, I had a new script to try to get working! :lol:

Originally I thought whether vhosts were involved might bear on it, but it doesn't seem to.

I'm stumped at the moment.

:shock:

I reinstalled xampp as administrator, and then the log file appeared as expected. :) :)

Thanks for your efforts anyway! :)

I just wanted to quote MC10, who said the following in thread http://community.apachefriends.org/f/viewtopic.php?t=40718

Maybe he can explain you, what went wrong the first time.

P.S.: Never mind, I was being a little sarcastic :mrgreen:
