I just did an upgrade of my server to Fedora 17 and merged some configuration files containing
.rpmnew into the existing ones. I have been successfully logging my php errors in a separate log file by keeping the following in
log_errors = On error_log = /var/log/php-errors.log
I am not sure why the errors are being logged to
/var/log/httpd/error_log after the upgrade despite keeping the settings above.
$ ls -l /var/log/php-errors.log -rwxrwxr--. 1 apache myself 232 Dec 13 16:49 /var/log/php-errors.log
shows that apache did own the php error log file.
What could be causing PHP errors to be logged into apache error log file?
