Hi Experts!
I am running a VPS on Plesk and have php.ini to globally disable warning/errors in php. However, that server is also used for dev purposes and I cannot seem to get .htaccess to display errors on a dev virtual site. Here are the settings I have:

php - 5.3.14

.htaccess values:
php_flag display_warnings On
php_flag diplay_errors On
php_flag html_errors On
AddType x-mapp-php5 .php

This code generates a blank screen, no errors:
echo "test"
echo "test2"

The file permissions are 0644 and I have tried putting dummy info in .htaccess which resulted in Internal Error being generated which somewhat proves that it is being read by apache.

If there is any other information needed, please let me know.

Any help greatly appreciated!
