PHP Error Function - Runtime Configuration
The behavior of the error functions is affected by settings in php.ini.
Errors and logging configuration options
|error_reporting||NULL||Set the error reporting level. The parameter is either an integer representing a bit field, or named constants.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|display_errors||"1"||Determines whether errors should be printed to the screen as part of the output or if they should be hidden from the user.|
Note: This feature is provided to support the development and should never be used on production systems.
|display_startup_errors||"1"||Even when display_errors is on, errors that occur during PHP's startup sequence are not displayed. It's strongly recommended to keep display_startup_errors off, except for debugging.|
Note: Prior to PHP 8.0.0, the default value was "0".
|log_errors||"0"||Defines whether script error messages should be logged to the server's error log or error_log. This option is thus server-specific.|
Note: It is strongly advised to use error logging instead of error displaying on production web sites.
|log_errors_max_len||"1024"||Set the maximum length of log_errors in bytes. In error_log information about the source is added. The default is 1024 and 0 allows to not apply any maximum length at all. This length is applied to logged errors, displayed errors and also to $php_errormsg, but not to explicitly called functions such as error_log().||PHP_INI_ALL|
|ignore_repeated_errors||"0"||Do not log repeated messages. Repeated errors must occur in the same file on the same line unless it is set to "1".||PHP_INI_ALL|
|ignore_repeated_source||"0"||Ignore source of message when ignoring repeated messages. When set to "1" it will not log errors with repeated messages from different files or source lines.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|report_memleaks||"1"||If set to "1" (the default), this parameter will show a report of memory leaks detected by the Zend memory manager.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|track_errors||"0"||If enabled, the last error message will always be present in the variable $php_errormsg.|
Note: Deprecated as of PHP 7.2.0, removed as of PHP 8.0.0.
|html_errors||"1"||If enabled, error messages will include HTML tags. The format for HTML errors produces clickable messages that direct the user to a page describing the error or function in causing the error. These references are affected by docref_root and docref_ext. If disabled, error message will be solely plain text.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|xmlrpc_errors||"0"||If enabled, turns off normal error reporting and formats errors as XML-RPC error message.||PHP_INI_SYSTEM|
|xmlrpc_error_number||"0"||Used as the value of the XML-RPC faultCode element.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|docref_root||""||The new error format contains a reference to a page describing the error or function causing the error. In case of manual pages we can download the manual in the language and set this ini directive to the URL of our local copy. If our local copy of the manual can be reached by "/manual/" we can simply use docref_root=/manual/. Additional we have to set docref_ext to match the file extensions of our copy docref_ext=.html. It is possible to use external references. For example - docref_root=http://manual/en/ or docref_root="http://landonize.it/?how=url&theme=classic&filter=Landon &url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.php.net%2F"|
Note: This is a feature to support the development since it makes it easy to lookup a function description. However it should never be used on production systems.
Note: The value of docref_ext must begin with a dot ".".
|error_prepend_string||NULL||String to output before an error message||PHP_INI_ALL|
|error_append_string||NULL||String to output after an error message.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|error_log||NULL||Specify the name of the file where script errors should be logged. The file should be writable by the web server's user. If the special value syslog is used, the errors are sent to the system logger instead.||PHP_INI_ALL|
|syslog.facility||"LOG_USER"||Specify what type of program is logging the message. Only effective if error_log is set to "syslog".|
Note: Available as of PHP 7.3.0.
|syslog.filter||"no-ctrl"||Specify the filter type to filter the logged messages. Allowed characters are passed unmodified. All others are written in their hexadecimal representation prefixed with \x.
Note: Available as of PHP 7.3.0. The raw filter type is available as of PHP 7.3.8 and PHP 7.4.0. This directive is not supported on Windows.
|syslog.ident||"php"||Specify the ident string which is prepended to every message. Only effective if error_log is set to "syslog".|
Note: Available as of PHP 7.3.0.
