How to Enable and Disable PHP Error Messages
This article describes how to enable and disable PHP error messages by using the display_errors directive in a php.ini file.
ERROR MESSAGES AND THE DISPLAY_ERRORS DIRECTIVE
By default, PHP displays error messages in a user's web browser. This feature is very useful when you are initially developing and debugging your website. However, when website development is complete, displaying error messages can be a security risk. Error messages can reveal information about your website, such as path information and variables that should be kept private.
The display_errors directive controls whether or not PHP displays error messages in users' web browsers. To prevent PHP from displaying error messages, use a text editor to modify the display_errors directive in the php.ini file for your web hosting account, as follows:
- display_errors = off
To allow PHP to display error messages, modify the display_errors directive in the php.ini file as follows:
- display_errors = on
Note: To verify the current value of the display_errors directive and other directives, you can use the phpinfo() function.
