PHP: How to Display Errors Without Tweaking the Configuration File

Displaying errors in your PHP applications by tweaking the configuration file is sometimes troublesome, especially for most beginners. Luckily, you don't have to get your hand dirty to deal with it.

After installing MAMP (Mac, Apache, MySQL, PHP) in my MacBook, I had a hard time debugging my PHP codes as MAMP's default configuration do not allow showing of error.

In production environment, showing errors is a big mistake you can commit as your website is more vulnerable to hack attacks. But in development environment such as localhost, showing errors save you a lot of time in debugging.

Here's what I did.

ini_set('display_errors', 1);

Put this two lines of codes in your index file and you'll see all the errors in your PHP codes will show off, if there are any (minus the links, of course).
