Debug Error-Logging Utility for PHP and Zen Cart
** NOTE: This utility is ALREADY included since v1.3.9a ** Simply look in the /cache/ folder to see the PHP debug logs (or if using v1.5.1 or newer, look in the /logs/ folder instead of the /cache/ folder).
Sometimes when a page is showing up blank due to hidden PHP errors, it can be hard to track down the cause -- especially if your server's errorlog isn't active or cannot easily be accessed.
Installing the debug error-logging tool will create debug logs of PHP problems for you to review.
Be sure to remove the utility when not needed, or it will slow down your site and consume large amounts of disk space.
** HOW TO USE: **
1. Download and unzip the utility
2. Upload the enclosed enable_error_logging.php file to the /includes/extra_configures/ folder.
3. Test the page on your site that is having problems -- ie: trigger whatever symptom is ailing you.
4. Open the latest log file /cache/myDEBUG-xxxxxxx.log to see the list of any PHP errors that occurred while the page/test was running.
5. Be sure to delete the enable_error_logging.php file from the /includes/extra_configures folder when done (or rename it to .php1 instead of .php )
