Good Afternoon All
Our php-errors.log file is creating an extremely large file on a new windows 2008 server running IIS7.
We are going to go through and correct all of the errors, but in the meantime, is there a way that I can restrict the file size?
I've looked at http://php.net/manual/en/errorfunc.configuration.php but this didn't seem to offer an answer.
Thank you in advance for any help
Thankyou for replying so quickly cpradio
Something seems to be not quite right here.
My php.ini file configuration is the default
log_errors_max_len = 1024
But the log_errors file size is well over 1024 bytes?
Thats why I didn't think that this was the solution. Would there be another configuration overiding this?
Well, it seems you and I both get to learn something new today. From StackOverflow, that setting only affects the max length for a single log entry, not the size of the error log. Why you would need 1 KB (the default) for a single log entry is beyond me.
Looks like you can use this log rotation tool in combination with 7-zip's command line utility to control your logs (granted you will need to edit it to point to the PHP logs instead of apache.
Thank you very much again cpradio
I will look into this and let you know the result
Thanks again, have a good evening
I'm just leaving the office, but can I just confirm this script will work with a windows server?
From what I understand the script I linked to was designed for a windows server
Play about with these file name settings:
ini_set('error_log', APPPATH .'php_error_' .date('Y-m-d-h-m') .'.log');
I'll play around with both of these ideas, thanks for all of your help, I appreciate you both taking the time and responding so quickly.
