but changing the setting in the php.ini IS technical.
the doc tells you want value to set to get a certain behaviour.
the doc also tells you that you can change the behaviour at run time using error_reporting() function.

there are also other settings that can influence error display:
http://php.net/manual/de/ref.errorfunc.php#errorfunc.constants

setting the error level to 0 will show no errors at all

If you see errors in the rowser depends on the php.ini setting display_errors. If its on all errors that match error_reporting are printed to screen. If display_errors is off no error (even fatal errors) will be displayed

You don't need to change the error reporting in php.ini, you can do it on a script by script basis, which is neat for debugging only certain areas of code. for example:

<?php
// Turn off all error reporting
error_reporting(0);

// Report simple running errors
error_reporting(E_ERROR | E_WARNING | E_PARSE);

// Reporting E_NOTICE can be good too (to report uninitialized
// variables or catch variable name misspellings ...)
error_reporting(E_ERROR | E_WARNING | E_PARSE | E_NOTICE);

// Report all errors except E_NOTICE
// This is the default value set in php.ini
error_reporting(E_ALL ^ E_NOTICE);

// Report all PHP errors (bitwise 63 may be used in PHP 3)
error_reporting(E_ALL);

?>
