OK this is getting very frustrating. MAMP used to display errors but then stopped. I decided to do a fresh install of it as I couldn't figure it out. I check my PHP version, running 5.4.4 and go to that folder and change the php.ini to this:

error_reporting  =  E_ALL
display_errors = On

Still no errors showing. I go through all the folders and change all php.ini files, just in case. Nothing. I fix the forced error and dump out phpinfo(), check the error section and display_errors is Off. What the hell.

I place error_reporting(E_ALL); ini_set('display_errors', 'on'); at the start of the PHP file and phpinfo() again. Local value is now On, master is still Off. Force a PHP error, and still get Server Error not PHP error.

Anybody have any insight? I have a bug somewhere in some code and cannot find it, would love for PHP to just tell me.

MAMP sets up a few different php.ini files for the server, the client etc. Check in your phpinfo() which php.ini actually is read. Looks like you're editing the wrong one.

Comments
  • Thank you, I had no idea. MAMP was reading from /MAMP/bin/php/5.4.4, I was editing /MAMP/conf/php/5.4.4. What a pain!
  • That also bugged me a month ago or so... ;-)
  • and don't forget to restart apache server after changes. :)
  • Why change two? 1st option seems fine.
  • I think I changed the first one and then restarted the service and it worked fine
  • I've not used MAMP for quite a while now, so I am unsure of the configuration files, so if this is now the correct way of doing things, that's fantastic. Much easier!
  • This is exactly what worked for me. NOTE: You must restart the server after changing the php.ini file for it to take effect
  • What version of MAMP is this?
  • I've got MAMP PRO v5.1. But, I solved it by uninstalling the whole thing and reinstalling. It works again, but not sure for how long.
  • I always find upgrading MAMP to be a nightmare, it never remembers settings. I just don't do it now, despite it's constant protesting. I'm glad you got it working. As long as you don't upgrade, you should be golden.
