From PHP Manual :
<?php
// Send notification through the server log if we can not
// connect to the database.
if (!Ora_Logon($username, $password)) {
    error_log("Oracle database not available!", 0);
}
 
// Notify administrator by email if we run out of FOO
if (!($foo = allocate_new_foo())) {
    error_log("Big trouble, we're all out of FOOs!", 1,
               "operator@example.com");
}
 
// another way to call error_log():
error_log("You messed up!", 3, "/var/tmp/my-errors.log");
?>

<?php
 
function myErrorHandler($errno, $errstr, $errfile, $errline){
    switch ($errno) {
    case E_USER_ERROR:
        if ($errstr == "(SQL)"){
            // handling an sql error
            echo "<b>SQL Error</b> [$errno] " . SQLMESSAGE . "<br />\n";
            echo "Query : " . SQLQUERY . "<br />\n";
            echo "On line " . SQLERRORLINE . " in file " . SQLERRORFILE . " ";
            echo ", PHP " . PHP_VERSION . " (" . PHP_OS . ")<br />\n";
            echo "Aborting...<br />\n";
        } else {
            echo "<b>My ERROR</b> [$errno] $errstr<br />\n";
            echo "  Fatal error on line $errline in file $errfile";

    case E_USER_WARNING:
    case E_USER_NOTICE:

    /* Don't execute PHP internal error handler */
    return true;
