At least in PHP, you can set a variable in /usr/local/lib/php.ini to
send errors to the web browser which is handy for development. Any of
the two errors below will generate an error message, but things are
complicated if your page uses tables. The bad php code is encountered,
the page generation halts and the table isn't completed and you don't
see an error message!
Test your php application on a simple page before deploying it, if
Or you could run the script from the command line which will generate a
readily available error message :)
