Hey Ash,

thanks for your reply.
I know this is a coding issue, and xt:commerce always produces loads of
notices. That said, I think the error_reporting setting does apply to
logging when mod_php is used. I could be wrong though.

But even fixing the whole of xt:commerce code to be notice free (which would
be rediculously much work) doesn't solve the problem. Whenever anyone is
installing something new on his website lying on this server, I'm gonna have
the same problem again. I can't spend my whole time basically reviewing code
that someone runs on the server... I think that's understandable ;)
So I'm afraid I'm gonna need some other ideas :(

Thanks again,
