The default PHP configuration reports all errors and also notices, this could blow up the logs very fast. If you want to log only errors instead of all, including notices, you have to edit the

php.ini configuration file located? PHP delivers us all configuration details with the
phpinfo(); function, you’ll find the path to your

You could also run this command in your console, but beware: If you are using PHP-FPM your php.ini is stored on a different location.
To find the php.ini with PHP-FPM run this command:
/usr/sbin/php5-fpm -i | grep php.ini
This will give you:
Configuration File (php.ini) Path => /etc/php5/fpm Loaded Configuration File => /etc/php5/fpm/php.ini
With a default PHP setup:
php -r "phpinfo(INFO_GENERAL);" | grep php.ini
You are using PHP only with your webserver? Simply create a new php file with this content:
<?php phpinfo(INFO_GENERAL); ?>
… and request it in your browser. Search for
php.ini and you’ll find the correct path.
Now it’s time to edit the
php.ini, in my case the configuration is inside
Default PHP configuration (try CTRL + W to search with nano for error_reporting, it’s a big config!):
error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_DEPRECATED & ~E_STRICT
error_reporting = E_COMPILE_ERROR|E_ERROR|E_CORE_ERROR

- Apache 2:
