I just adjusted the php.ini on my CentOS 64 Bits VPS in /etc/php.ini to log PHP errors:
cat /etc/php.ini | grep php-errors.log error_log = /var/log/php-errors.log
I also have
log_errors = on
I created the log file in /var/log/ and it is CHMOD 644. I also turned on Error reporting E_ALL
cat /etc/php.ini | grep error_reporting ; error_reporting error_reporting = E_ALL ; Eval the expression with current error_reporting(). Set to true if you want ; error_reporting(0) around the eval().
Then I restarted the httpd daemon. When I add a file via the WordPress uploader I see it is not uploaded because of a permission issue
“cannot-open-file.png” has failed to upload due to an error Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2014/05. Is its parent directory writable by the server?
, but it is not stored as an error in php-errors.php:
pwd /var/log ls -l | grep php -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 0 May 6 06:21 php-errors.log
All my other logs in
/var/log/httpd are also
root:root so I would assume the logging would work. And when I did adjust the file's permissions to
apache:apache as suggested I still had no errors in the log file. Even adding error logging on to the .htaccess did not help.
I also checked the PHP.ini using
phpinfo() . The only ini loaded is the one I adjusted in
/etc/php.ini and the user and group it is using is apache -
User/Group apache(48)/48 . What am I missing?
PS Could be issues with the directory for the log files as suggested here Can't configure PHP error log I am checking out more info on this.
