Q: I'm not seeing warnings or errors in my environment like the video; why not?

A: Your PHP configuration is probably configured not to show them to you. This is often true on commercial web hosts and is often the default. Fortunately, there are multiple ways of resolving this.

The easiest way would be to explicitly enable error reporting at the top of the PHP script you wish to debug.

error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT);
ini_set('display_errors', 1);

Alternatively, if you have access to your php.ini file and you want to always have error reporting on, change error_reporting = to a development friendly value of

error_reporting = E_ALL | E_STRICT

then change display_errors = to

display_errors = On

Finally, if access to the php.ini file is not available, you can add the following directives to your .htaccess or VirtualHost configuration for Apache:

php_value error_reporting 32767
php_value display_errors 1
