Please Note: Log files to not automatically rotate. To prevent large files accumulating you should disable error logging once you have finished debugging.
- Stop PHP errors from displaying on your website by adding the following lines to your .htaccess file.
# Do not display PHP error messages php_flag display_startup_errors off php_flag display_errors off php_flag html_errors off
- Enable PHP error logging and specify your php_error.log by the following lines to your .htaccess file.
# enable PHP error logging php_value error_reporting INSERT_VALUE_HERE php_flag log_errors on php_value error_log /hsphere/local/home/USERNAME/php_error_your_domain.log
The value used defines the level or error reporting you require, for example:
- -1 = ALL errors, not recommended but can be useful when used sparingly.
- 30719 = Same as E_ALL, less info than -1
- 30711 = E_ALL but not E_NOTICE
- 30709 = E_ALL but not E_NOTICE or E_WARNING
- 22517 = E_ALL but not E_NOTICE or E_WARNING or E_DEPRECATED
Please ensure that the path used in ‘php_value error_log’ is correct, you can find this from within your control panel under FTP/User Account > FTP User > Home Directory.
- Create the php_error_your_domain.log file.
- Depending on the PHP mode your site is running:
- PHP libPHP mode you will need to give this file world writeable/777 permissions using your FTP client.
- PHP FastCGI mode is recommend as you do not have to open additional permissions (FTP uploaded files will have 644 permissions by default).
