I don't say that my point of view is the only truth of configurating something. And i don't want to criticise your changes to get rid of your own problems.
But i don't want to let your changes uncommented because your post was very generic in explaination but very specific in the changes and values. Other members maybe don't have the knowledge or background to know why you have setted a parameter to that specific value and for those people i want to provide a second point of view, nothing more.

My recommendation was not to use this or that specific error_reporting. This setting has to be setted to the value which fits the issue. I don't know your specific issue so i wouldn't recommend a specific setting to you. Let me quote myself

I haven't said that you recommend that change. I just said that i don't recommend that change. That is a huge difference.
You have solved your issue with that change, i'm fine with that. The success vindicates you.
But hiding all messages can produce new problems because others maybe don't look into logfiles or doesn't know where they are saved.
I just want to make that clear. Are you fine with that?

You can use whatever you want. Maybe a php form based solution is the only solution for your very special database, i don't know (and i don't care).
But for all other readers here: there are much better (because less error-prone) ways to import databases with sizes > 50MB than using php based scripts.

And i gave others just a second point of view. I think we both have the same goal.

large uploads, large phpmyadmin imports, every infinity loop will occupy the Apache for e.g. 1000 seconds
You maybe know what to do, but a beginner following your úndescribed changes can get in trouble with that.

No, there is no reason for deleting such posts. I accept that you have your own opinion and way to do things and solve your problems.
But you should accept that your opinion is not the only one and that a community board is a place where different opinions can be posted.
If this is not to your taste, than maybe you should post your solutions on a personal blog with deactivated comment function, i don't know.
This board here is a place where different opinions are welcome.
As you can remember, in one of your other threads we got exactly the same discussion why i answering your thread. That was exactly the same reason as this discussion here: you are posting way too generic without explaining things enough. So, if you don't explain things to protect beginner users, i will do.
Quax wrote:To post every time an answer with critics only, without to asking first WHY someone had done something, is an quite negative attitude.
It isn't my job to ask YOU why you do things like you do.
I think i can criticise that you don't explain things enough to protect others.
My critism was neither personally nor destructive i think. I explained why i don't recommend these changes (without knowing the specific issue) and gave alternatives.
Maybe that is not your opinion also, i'm fine with that.
