C.3.2. PHP 4.x Apache Directives Notes

When using PHP as an Apache module, not cgi and cli version, you can also change the configuration settings using directives in Apache configuration files (e.g. httpd.conf) and .htaccess files (You will need "AllowOverride Options" or "AllowOverride All" privileges)


PHP constants do not exist outside of PHP. For example, in httpd.conf do not use PHP constants such as E_ALL or E_NOTICE to set the error_reporting directive as they will have no meaning and will evaluate to 0. Use the associated bitmask values instead. These constants can be used in php.ini
