I am upgrading a Joomla 25 site to J3, and developing a new template. I am working locally on MAMP.
However, whenever any php error occur, Joomla won't show what the error is, instead I am getting the blank screen and making it a real pain to fix those errors and work efficiently.
Whatever I try, I always get the local value of the error_reporting as 0. (Master value is 32767).
I set it in the configuration.php, tried setting via the htaccess, I modified and set it directly in the error handling function inside the includes/framework.php, I ini_set it in the index.php of Joomla and also at the top of the index.php of the template, but yet the local error_reporting value remains 0.
There is no additional php.ini file loaded other than the main php config file and all other local php/joomla sites I have on my MAMP do show php errors according to their specified settings.
What's wrong with this site?
