I'm here because the Google has failed to get me what I need.

I just recently graduated from university, and I'm working on a website. Back in college I used the school's web server for my projects, and there were a few tools that aided in the process. One was a Linux program/script/executable/prayer to the computing gods called "httperrors". You typed that into bash, and it would pop up any errors that would occur while running the web server. Specifically, if you had errors in your php code, it would tell you what was wrong. I guess it was a debugger of sorts.

I can't find any such program's details online. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I don't know, but I have used Xdebug in the past, when I needed a PHP debugger and profiler. It worked quite well for me (although I haven't needed to write PHP in a while, luckily). –  user55325 Jun 2 '14 at 5:41
