No error ouput to page on parse error in PHP (IIS 6)

I have a very basic installation of PHP running on a windows 2003 server runing the latest version of IIS 6.  I followed one of the readily available installation guides and it has been working quite well.  The only problem is that when a parse error occurs the error is not sent to the web browser.  I am assume it is logged somewhere, but that does not do me too much good.  How can I enable error output to the broswer?

On an error the browser window is blank containing only very basic HTML code (must be the default for IIS or something):

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
<HTML><HEAD>
<META http-equiv=Content-Type content="text/html; charset=windows-1252"></HEAD>
<BODY></BODY></HTML>

Any thoughts?

in your php.ini file (located in the windows folder in c:) search for the following section

; Error handling and logging ;

and check the following settings are set in your file

error_reporting  = E_ALL;

or (to show all errors except notices)

error_reporting  = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE;

and

display_errors = On


Failing that check that there is not a die or exit statement in your script which is terminating the script (and thus wont output any code)

ie.

die();

or

exit;

by the way if you make changes to you php.ini file you will have to restart IIS for the changes to take effect.

Also, look for code with @ in front ...

<?php

$fp = fopen('I don't exist and will cause an error','r);

?>

will cause an error, but ...

<?php

$fp = @fopen('I don't exist and will cause an error','r);

?>


will not.

Normally, the above line would look like ...

<?php

$fp = @fopen('I don't exist and will cause an error','r) or die('Could not open the non existant file.');

?>
