Unanswered: How can I see detailed PHP errors (500) on IIS
I am new to PHP (coming from ASP), I have installed PHP on my local machine for testing purposes but i see detailed server errors, all I get is the IIS custom page or a non detailed message.
Here is what I have and have done:
-Windows vista with IIS 7, have turned on CGI and instal PHP 5.3
-I have renamed php.ini-development to php.ini (and made a copy)
-Checked that the variable display_errors is set to On
-Went to the site on IIS, went to the error pages and set the error responses to detailed error. Restarted IIS
i have done pretty much any thing i have found on forums but no luck.
you may also need to set the error_reporting level
PHP: Runtime Configuration - Manual
also have a tral through this google search
After spending some more time on the various info there i still could not get it to work.
So i pend more time looking at the phpinfo to notice the problem.
I had created a folder C:\php where i unzipped the files and used the windows install to install PHP. i used all default settings and the instal was actually done in c:\program files\php so the php.ini i was modifying was not actually the one influencing the actual script. I uninstalled and reinstalled in the proper folder and it is now working. Left me feeling a little dumb of course, but at least it is working now!!
