My last error was on : Sep 5 11:31 947043863198

I just noticed it and have no clue why it's not working. I checked the admin panel in system > configuration > developer and made sure the log settings were set to "enabled" YES

system log file name = system.log

exceptions log file name = exception.log

Why can't i see my errors in the var/report?

permissions on that report folder: rwxrwx---+ 2 user user 4096 Sep 5 11:35 report

    Did you check the permission on var/report? You may also want to check you server temp folders (i.e /tmp) Oct 6, 2015 at 18:03

system > configuration > developer -> log settings -> Enabled set to YES

This settings are only for logs and it will allow system to create log in var/log folder with system.log and exception.log files.

In var/report folder system will generate fatal error reports. And above settings not used for var/report.

  • It's not generating reports in var/report, fatal error reports not working. any idea why? this is the main problem. I need this to work correctly so i may debug.

  • do you have sufficient permission to var folder. or for testing you can rename addCss function in class Mage_Page_Block_Html_Head and see what error coming in frontend and check it will generate report or not. Oct 6, 2015 at 18:07
  • it appears so, i posted my permissions for that folder above.

  • means after testing as I mention above, is it showing error report number or showing error directly on page? Oct 6, 2015 at 18:17
  • I'm going to test that now.
