Wordpress Debugging - PHP Logs

Very quick one, more of a note to self that I can reference in the future. In order to debug php on a wordpress site, do the following:

// Create the file php-errors.log next to wp-config.php, ensure it's writable
// Add the following to wp-config.php
@ini_set('log_errors','On'); // enable or disable php error logging (use 'On' or 'Off')
@ini_set('display_errors','Off'); // enable or disable public display of errors (use 'On' or 'Off')

This turns on php logging and pipes the logs into php-errors.log.
