    Default help with seting up xampp

    I have a new installation of xampp on my machine. I all my website are popping up errors that once worked perfectly. I think it has something to with error message setting. I tried playing around by changing the setting but i cant seem to find the right combination for the settings. Any idea how to fix this?

    What's the error message that you are receiving?
    Did you take turn off friendly messages in Internet option?

    I cant recall the messages but it has to do with how variable are checked for example if($_POST['var'] != "") causes an error also all opening tags that dont have "<?php" causes an error. some of my opeing tags are simply "<?"

    I do not have much experiences with xampp as it was a pain that's why i used wamp server instead.
    From the error you describe, its doesn't seem like its from xampp

    Error messages are important. You will need to fix those errors eventually. especially if you plan to upload the website. But a temporary fix is to reduce the error level of you php.ini. Find you php.ini file and go to the Error handling and logging. You will see lots of text there, read it and set the "error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT" or one of the other setting that are described.

    In your php.ini file (C:\xampp\php\php.ini <== Default location)

    In line 516 of mine, I set the following:

    Code:
    error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED

    If you want to really get rid of the errors, then you can turn errors off.
    In line 533

    Code:
    display_errors = Off

    turning errors off is a bad idea

    I use the following to show me some errors

    Code:
    error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
    Not as heavy as the E_STRICT option which shows everything, even show functions and other calls which have been depreciated.
