If I have an error in the PHP code, Lighttpd gives a 500 error and a line like this

mod_fastcgi.c.2676) FastCGI-stderr: PHP Parse error:...

appears in the log.

The php.ini (/etc/php5/cgi/php.ini) has the following lines:

display_errors = On
display_startup_errors = On
error_reporting = E_ALL

I'd like to see the errors in the browser, not in the log of the web server.

You will need to set display_errors to Onin your php.ini file:

display_errors = On
