Hello everybody,

I have chosen this list because my problem is related to one particular
style of php installation. At least I think so.

I'm running php 5.2.11 and plesk 9.2.3, php through fastCGI.

My problem is that, since error_log is unset, php passes on any errors
to the webserver (-handler). This fills up my logs with hundreds of
MBytes of Notices every day, even though error_reporting is set to 6135
(notices shouldn't be logged).
So error_reporting appears to be ignored when error_log is unset and php
is run through fastcgi. Any idea how I can fix that?
I unfortunately can't change error_log to the appropriate path, because
the fastcgi user doesn't have access to the log directory...

Here is an example log:
[Mon Oct 26 00:57:52 2009] [warn] mod_fcgid: stderr: PHP Notice:
Undefined offset: 1 in
x3/inc/ on line 82

Thanks so much in advance,

I believe that the reporting level is only used for errors displayed in
the browser window, not to the ones that are logged.

The error_reporting setting controls both logged and displayed errors.

@Max ... is it possible your application is resetting error_reporting after you set it manually? Maybe try a recursive grep on the source tree for error_reporting.
