logging php errors on godaddy hosting

Godaddys' linux hosting allows for editing your own "php.ini" file and enables support for logging errors, good for debugging purposes when developing with php.

Add the below lines to php.ini in the document root, to log all errors:

error_reporting  =  E_ALL
log_errors = on
error_log = /home/content/p/a/t/pathto/html/error_log

You should also protect the php.ini and error_log file via .htaccess:

<FilesMatch "(error_log|php\.ini)$">
  Order deny,allow
  Deny from all
