Our Testing of the Error Reporting Setting
To test the different options that are available for Error Reporting, we created a simple syntax error in the mod_login module by removing a ; from the PHP code. We then went through the various Error Reporting settings to see what type of error would be reported. Here are our findings:
|System Default||Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_REQUIRE in /home/bradm/public_html/github2/modules/mod_login/mod_login.php on line 21|
|Simple||Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_REQUIRE in /home/bradm/public_html/github2/modules/mod_login/mod_login.php on line 21|
|Maximum||Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_REQUIRE in /home/bradm/public_html/github2/modules/mod_login/mod_login.php on line 21|
As you can see in the table above, all settings showed the same error message, except the none setting. As the none setting implies, no error messages are shown on the screen.
