Turning on PHP page errors?

Posted June 19, 2014 6.4k views
Excuse the nooby post please :) I've set up a wordpress site on an Ubuntu droplet. It looks like PHP errors are off by default, and I'd like to have them for development. I've editted the php.ini in the apache2 folder but still no errors. phpinfo() is showing show_errors as NO even though I set it to YES in the file. What am I missing?

Did you restart apache2? If you did, the next thing would be to make sure there isn't an override in the .htaccess file (somewhere in /var/www/)
I bet I didnt restart, let me try that!
