|The latest version of this mod uses the guidelines for TNG v12+ cust_text.php files. If you are using TNGv12+, and any cust_text.php file in this mod is marked with a Bad Target error, you need to update your cust_text.php files before you can install this mod. [Show instructions]
If you upgraded to TNGv12+, and did not update your cust_text.php files as instructed in the upgrade readme script, then you must use the TNG Mod Manager to update them. To do so:

If you've ever had site system errors, this mod gives access to the PHP error log without the need to exit your site or download the error log.
The Show PHP Error Log mod also sorts the log entries to show the most recent errors first.
The Show PHP Error Log mod can be used on sites that do not normally provide access to the PHP error log by adding overrides to your php.ini or by creating a .user.ini file (PHP 5.3 and later) as documented in PHP error log
Adds a menu option to view and optionally clear, the system error log within the Admin screen. The link to display this report is added to the top (horizontal) menu bar in the admin section of your site. The log is sorted in reverse chronological order to the way it is written, thus displaying the latest errors at the top.
This is how the report looks. You can see the additional menu in the header.
Note that v10.0.3.5 renamed Roger Mitchell's and changed the System Errors Log to PHP Error Log in the above screen capture
- Version 10.0.3.5 renames the mod to Show PHP Error Log and fixes the overlay of the Mod Manager clear log text in languages other than English.
- Adds custom text for French-UTF8,and Czech-UTF8, German-UTF8, and Spanish-UTF8 provided by Ron Krzmarzick, and Swedish-UTF8 provided by Erik Hoppe
- Version 10.0.3.4 includes the option to select the error log path and name.
- This mod only includes English language variables. To add support for other languages, open and edit the .cfg file to add your language translations.
- Version 10.0.3.5 added cust_text.php variables for Czech, French, German, Spanish, and Swedish languages
- Mod has not been tested on TNG versions below 10.0.3 but it is likely to work on all TNG versions.
- The error log is not limited to display a set number of entries. The entire log will be displayed with the latest entries appearing first.
- This mod will work "out of the box" on most installations but I have identified a couple of sites where this isn't the case. Some hosts archive the error log at the end of each month and start a new log. If this is the case, then there is probably less to be gained from my mod.
- If you don't understand the entries in the error log, please, DON'T ask me what they mean. You will have to seek advice from elsewhere (Mr. Google, for example!). Again, perhaps this mod isn't for you.
- A working TNG installation.
- An installed current version of the Mod Manager
- Access to your PHP error log. See PHP error log on how to get access by overriding the PHP definition file
- Download the zip file from the download links in the mod summary area in the upper right.
- Extract the contents of the zip file into your mods folder and upload to your site.
- Follow the normal automated installation for Mod Manager, as shown in the example Mod Manager - Installing Config Files to install the chosen cfg file.
Mod Manager Edit Options
In Mod Manager >> Edit Options, enter the path and name of the log you wish to view. The default is ../../logs/php_error.log.
PHP error log location
