PHP & MySQL not working locally

I am running a PHP & MySQL website. I have it setup in my production server (IIS) and works just fine:

http://www.wiredinwellness.net/

If I enter incorrect password it redirects to the same page (login.php) and shows the error message, if its the correct password it redirects to the secured portion of the site.

But In my development environment its not working. I am running it on a MAC computer using MAMP, everything seems to be setup properly, the login page actually comes up just fine, but whether I enter the correct or incorrect user/password it reloads login.php but NOTHING is displayed, a blank page comes up, no errors.

is there a way to debug or find what may be wrong in my configuration that locally the page is not submitting properly or maybe the redirect is the issue ?  not sure. Locally doesn't work, when uploaded to the remote server works just fine. so the PHP code is just fine, has to be some configuration on the my local server for sure.

I am new to this environment (MAMP/PHP/MySQL) so I am not sure to even where to look.

Help is appreciated.

Try checking your Apache error logs. I don't use Macs but apparently you'll find it here:

/var/log/apache2/error_log

Also, turning on display_errors may not be enough. Add this to the very top of your pages:

<?php
error_reporting(E_ALL);
ini_set('display_errors', 1);

And take a note of what the docs says:

Although display_errors may be set at runtime (with ini_set()), it won't have any effect if the script has fatal errors. This is because the desired runtime action does not get executed.

It sounds like you have two environments; a production env and a dev env. Each has it's own server.
Could your login.php be trying to talk to the wrong server ?

No sir. Each one is talking to its own database. The servers are not connected in any way. Production works fine, hence the PHP code must be correct. But in my local environment for developing displays a blank page. Has to be something in my local setup causing this.

Ill try adding the code for displaying the error see what I come up with.
