HowTo disable PHP errors using htaccess on a shared hosting

  • Hi wp fans

    I am trying to disable PHP errors using the .htaccess file. I am on a shared hosting provider. Currently I am using this code:

    php_flag display_errors off
    php_value error_reporting 0

    but I get “Internal Server Error” message.

    The thing is that I use this code on my local server (apache) and it works just fine. But on the shared host I get that message.

    Is there any other way to disable those PHP errors under a shared host or is there any other code to use ?

    I will greatly appreciate your response and I thank you in advance.

    Try this in your wp-config.php file (back up that file first):


    If that doesn’t work, undo those changes and ask your hosting how to disable errors.

    Hi Jan Dembowski,

    Thank you for your fast response. I tried that also and unfortunately it does not work either.

    I guess it is up to the hosting provider on how to disable those errors.

    Bit of frustrating though.

    try to disable display errors in php.ini file. Some of the shared hosting servers run PHP as CGI module, where .htaccess php_flags won’t work fine. Some of hosting servers have their own php.ini file for each and every accounts they have, go to it, and edit; otherwise, create a custom php.ini file where you wish to set display errors off with following code:

    display_errors = Off
    error_reporting = 0

    Hi ravimallya,

    Thank you for replying.

    I tried that also with no luck. Unfortunately neither php.ini or .htaccess works on some hosting providers.

    Where you hosted your website, Markuswp? Whether you’re using cPanel? Can I have a page link to phpinfo(); function? You can create a test PHP file with following code and provide me with exact url of that file from your domain:


    You’re most welcome. I’m bit interested in Unix and WordPress.
