xampp control panel cant find php_error_log

Postby mkortink » 11. April 2017 00:44

From the XAMPP control panel if for Apache I click [Logs] and select PHP (php_error_log) notepad opens saying it can't find the log file. I am sure this used to work, and am a bit puzzled by the name php_error_log, why not php_error.log.

I have tried changing php.ini by setting error_log = C:\xampp\apache\logs\php_error.log but it has not made a difference.

I would be happy to just go back to the default behavior of php logging to the apache error.log and not get an error on clicking the php_error_log.

BUT ideally I would like php errors to go to php_error.log with the control panel being able to find the log.

If you change the name of the log, then clicking the "log" button in the control panel won't find the default log file. Changing the php.ini does not change the hard-coded file name in the control panel, it only tells php what to name the file.

As long as I can remember the naming convention for php errors has been error_log in standard php installations (a Linux convention). Whoever put together the xampp package just added php in front - probably just for clarification.
