Turning off "strict errors..."

I've got a "strict error" being reported on a page that I'm working on and, from what I can tell, it's not an error as much as it's a warning and I want to get rid of it for the time being.

I've gone into my php.ini file and replaced:

error_reporting=E_ALL

with...

error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT

...and it didn't make any difference.

I've got screen shot attached that shows the error that I'm thinking for right now is not a priority. It's the one that reads: Strict standards:  Declaration of securityCheck::processLogin() should be compatible with Authenticate::processLogin($username, $plainPassword) in C:\wamp\www\WebTemplate\classes\securityCheck.class.php on line 22

So, what am I missing? What have I yet to disable or am I looking at something beyond my php.ini file?

the php.ini on some systems includes the descriptions that for development you would use E_ALL|E_STRICT while production will have E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED

The error means you have a variable that you are using that you have not declared.
While strict is an annoyance at times, it simplifies trouble shooting i.e. variable name typos, etc. will be immediately repored and you would not wind up with a huge code where under a certain condition the response you get is not one that you expected and going through the code trying to locate ....

Try this as well,
error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT

Open in new window


Make sure you restarted the server and changes reflected on your php.ini

I learned the hard way just now that regardless of what you document in your php.ini file, if you've got error_reporting set to E_ALL in your file, you're going to have a hard time silencing things that you want to keep quiet.

I got it!

Thanks!

You could just fix the errors and warnings instead of hiding them.

Not looking to sweep anything under the carpet, Dave, but it's not my code and I'm trying to knock out the "dealbreakers" first and then I 'll go back and address what the system is addressing as "...it would be better if" stuff.
