How to Create an Error Log in PHP

 /  1 response

It was only recently that I realized you could send custom error logs to whatever file you want. I just create a logs directory and told PHP to write a message to that location when the script was hit. In the below code, the message “Error message” will get sent to error.log.

<?php

error_log("Error message\n", 3, "/Users/tania/logs/error.log");
