Server got upgraded from PHP 5.2 to 5.3 and now I am no longer getting syntax errors, just a blank white page. I know this is a common question, and I normally know what needs to be done, I’ve just never had this situation before.
php.ini has display_errors on and error_reporting is set to E_ALL & E_NOTICE. Are there any other directives that could be affecting it? I used to get syntax error messages (
"Unexpected ; in file on line...").
Am I being really stupid here?
I had the directive slightly wrong. The correct value in php.ini needs to be:
E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
try in php.ini
error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT display_errors = On
save and restart apache
you didnt mention the OS but assuming you work on an Unix variant, you can see the errors by running this command :
tail -f /var/logs/apache2/error.log
tail -f /var/log/httpd/error_log
And the web server configurations might have been changed too.
