PHP error log not working WAMP 2.1 on Windows 7

I am Trying to edit the PHP.INI file So THAT the PHP error log shows errors. When I uncomment the line in the INI file and save it, the Service Will not start. The line I want to uncomment is: ; error_log = "c :/ wamp / logs / php_error.log" The file already exists in this directory. How can I get logging of PHP errors to work?

You must be doing something wrong

The parameter shouidl look like this


error_log = "c:/wamp/logs/php_error.log"

(no spaces around the slash character.


Also you need to check that

display_errors = On

if you want errror to appear on the browser

and

log_errors = On

to get the errors in the error_log file as well

Hi, thanks for answering. Both of the above are turned ON. When I uncomment the file through, WAMP won't start up. Where can I look for WAMP startup errors?

Are you sure that you have a c:\wamp\logs folder that actually exists?

Yes. The folder and the php_error.log file already exist.
How can I tell why WAMP is not able to start when I try to use that file?
thanks

Install TeamViewer and I will troubleshoot for you.

Install TV, then run it.

Send me a Private Message containing the TV ID and PASSWORD so I can connect.
Leave TV running as it will change the password each time you restart it.

I have a meeting right now, but will be back within an hour. Back at 14:30 or before UK time

OK, thanks for your help today.
Log is now working.
Fix was to put extension=php_mbstring.dll before other extensions as this was causing an erro in Apache startup.

Also removed the ZIP extension as it is part of the core PHP in this version.
