How to enable php display_errors?

I cannot enable the display_errors setting in PHP. What could be the reason?

I'm using virtual box with PHP 5.3 installed with apache2 running. I have tried everything to get display errors but nothing seems to work.

I have set php_flag display_errors on in my htaccess file and enabled it directly in the php.ini file

I tried the below two format
1. Code: display_errors = 1
2. Code:display_errors = On

I think my ini file is 5.4 but the two should be about the same.

PHP Code:
The following are all the settings which are different in either the production
; or development versions of the INIs with respect to PHP's default behavior.
; Please see the actual settings later in the document for more details as to why
; we recommend these changes in PHP'
s behavior.

;   Default ValueOn
;   Development ValueOff
;   Production ValueOff

;   Default ValueOn
;   Development ValueOn
;   Production ValueOff

;   Default ValueOff
;   Development ValueOn
;   Production ValueOff

;   Default ValueE_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT & ~E_DEPRECATED
;   Development ValueE_ALL
;   Production ValueE_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT 
and further down in the ini file:

PHP Code:
Error Level Constants:
E_ALL             All errors and warnings (includes E_STRICT as of PHP 6.0.0)
E_ERROR           fatal run-time errors
E_RECOVERABLE_ERROR  almost fatal run-time errors
E_WARNING         run-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
E_PARSE           compile-time parse errors
E_NOTICE          run-time notices (these are warnings which often result
;                     from a bug in your codebut it's possible that it was
;                     intentional (e.g., using an uninitialized variable and
;                     relying on the fact it'
s automatically initialized to an
;                     empty string)
E_STRICT          run-time noticesenable to have PHP suggest changes
;                     to your code which will ensure the best interoperability
;                     and forward compatibility of your code
E_CORE_ERROR      fatal errors that occur during PHP's initial startup
; E_CORE_WARNING    - warnings (non-fatal errors) that occur during PHP'
;                     initial startup
E_COMPILE_ERROR   fatal compile-time errors
E_COMPILE_WARNING compile-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
E_USER_ERROR      user-generated error message
E_USER_WARNING    user-generated warning message
E_USER_NOTICE     user-generated notice message
E_DEPRECATED      warn about code that will not work in future versions
;                     of PHP
E_USER_DEPRECATED user-generated deprecation warnings
Common Values:
E_ALL (Show all errorswarnings and notices including coding standards.)
E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE  (Show all errorsexcept for notices)
E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE & ~E_STRICT  (Show all errorsexcept for notices and coding standards warnings.)
; Default 
Development ValueE_ALL
Production ValueE_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT
;error_reporting E_ALL E_STRICT remarked 2-1-13

Even if error reporting is correctly set on there are routines that might be added to scripts that suppresses them. This page provides some information about that: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/...errors-php-5-3

Adding this PHP-code to the beginning of a PHP-script will display errors for that file(if the warning/error occur after those two lines has been processed by PHP):
ini_set('display_errors', 1);
Also remember if you make changes to the php.ini-file then you may need to restart the server for the changes to take affect.

To make things even more clear, you should restart apache/nginx (or other web server), but not your whole server (reboot command).

You should go to php.ini file in the server that if you have local server to uncomment that error displaying to see the errors.
