In his travels as a PHP developer, Jamie Wong has gathered some helpful debugging tips that are shared in this latest post to his blog.
Here are some bugfixing rules and tips Iâ€™ve learned working all these years with PHP. I emphasize mostly on fixing bugs than preventing them, which is another subject worth of its own article. Iâ€™ve moved to Rails, but I wanted to finish this post as a farewell and thanks to every article and documentation that was useful to me. Hope this is useful to you too.
Topics covered include:
- Assume nothing
- Turn Error Reporting to show all errors
- Read the error message
- Understand the bug
- "Scooby-Bug, where are you?"
- Get as much information as possible
