There are several methods to solve errors in PHP code. Sometimes when the user waits to see an output a blank page will be shown if there is an error. To show the errors E_ALL^E_STRICT is used for the PHP 5 version. Contrarily, remaining versions just use E_ALL.

Even though error_reporting set to E_ALL, PHP sometimes still shows a ’blank’ page without showing the errors. Therefore, to indicate errors it should run in different directory, because the directory may be full and by erasing the file, the errors will be displayed as usually. It may even help in turning the ’error logging’ off.

If the reporting of an error is set in http.conf contained by a script then the ’integer’ value must be used and not the string in some versions. Or else the error message would not be displayed during the output of a program.

The handling of errors is very important because they are useful in removing harmful user information about the system, allowing the developer to access the information. PHP provides certain methods for handling the errors.

For example, the browser can be installed in such way that errors are not displayed; instead we can log and see the errors using log_errors and display_errors directives in the php.ini file. Depending on the change needed in the development, the error display can be turned on and off.

Error_reporting() may give the results which are not expected if the @ error repression command is used. Depending on the configuration settings, this will throw an error level E_WARNING in relation to the missing file. If the command is removed, the code works as expected. On the other hand, by using ini_set in config.php, the same result is accomplished. From this, we can know that the above said instructions are same.

The fatal errors can be caught by making use of another dynamic way. The fundamental is easy and can be tested with the system. In work sites, it fails to catch these fatal errors when the display errors are turned on, but sometimes the system can be tested to see all the fatal errors quickly in an unproblematic way by turning off the display errors. The syntax for the function used to catch all the fatal errors is;

function catchFatalErrors($p_OnOff=’On’)

If there is a warning like “Warning: mysql_query()” then the query requires a full table scan. It is not looked in error_reporting settings it will be set in php.ini. It can be turned off by writing syntax; within_set(“mysql.trace_mode”,”Off”), in the script.

The quick methods as said above, when used in codes helps in the avoidance of errors. Like when a blank page appears instead of an output, it can be avoided by using the methods and when the errors appear, they can be rectified by using the above methods.
