Bug#569673: egroupware-core: illegal error_reporting configuration option in /etc/egroupware/apache.conf

Package: egroupware-core
Version: 1.6.002+dfsg-1
Severity: important

The shipped apache.conf is broken in that it effectively disables any error reporting.

It configures error_reproting as

  php_value error_reporting 'E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE'

which does not work in apache config files as the symbolic constant names are not
known there. This effectively sets error_reporting to "0" and caused me quite some
time to debug the cause of me getting a white page only instead of some helpful error
messages, especially I've set error_Reporting correctly in my global php.ini file.

Please note the following snipped from on this topic:

Note: PHP Constants outside of PHP
Using PHP Constants outside of PHP, like in httpd.conf, will have no useful meaning so
in such cases the integer values are required. And since error levels will be added over
time, the maximum value (for E_ALL) will likely change. So in place of E_ALL consider
using a larger value to cover all bit fields from now and well into the future, a
numeric value like 2147483647 (includes all errors, not just E_ALL).
