Can you change the text/font of PHP output messages and errors such as to white, on a black site?

Hello

Is it possible to change the text style of messages from PHP and maybe MySQL while I'm asking?

My website background is black so obviously I cant see any appear I have been pressing CTRL+A on the page for the last 2 weeks lol  Also the messages show behind elements on my site so I need to CTRL+C and then CTRL+P into notepad lol

Its a bit much work to read it. This is one of those questions I bet I should know, something obvious! but then that happens to me sadly!!!

Thanks anyone

Aw I tried to delete this question too late lol

It hit me after it you can encapsulate a block of PHP so that its output is styled. Just setting the body font-color never popped up though.

There is an easier way than encapsulating the whole php code or changing the whole page style...

Take the MySQL errors for examples. Wrap them in a CSS definition, and style it. Have a look at the code and tell me if it is clear :


// your MySQL query	
$result = mysql_query($query, $conn);
// we capture the error message and style it
if (!$result) errorDie('<h2 class="error">Invalid query: '.mysql_error()."\nWhole query: ".$query."</h2>"); //debug

There are configuration options in php.ini to make this work:

; String to output before an error message.
;error_prepend_string = "<font color=ff0000>"

; String to output after an error message.
;error_append_string = "</font>"
