Latest stable version Build Status Coverage Status Dependency Status

Simple error and exception handler:

  • converts error to an ErrorException instance according to error reporting level
  • when running the PHP CLI, reports errors/exceptions to STDERR (even fatal error) and uses exception code as exit status
  • allows to deactivate @ operator
  • catches fatal error
  • accepts callback to be executed at the end of the internal shutdown function
  • accepts callback to display an apology when errors are hidden
  • allows to ignore errors on some paths, useful with old libraries and deprecated code…


  1. Class autoloading and dependencies are managed by Composer so install it following the instructions on Composer: Installation - *nix or just run the following command:

    $ curl -sS | php
  2. Add dependency to GAubry\ErrorHandler into require section of your composer.json:

        "require": {
            "geoffroy-aubry/errorhandler": "1.*"

    and run php composer.phar install from the terminal into the root folder of your project.

  3. Include Composer's autoloader:

    require_once 'vendor/autoload.php';


  1. Basic usage, in your bootstrap:

    use GAubry\ErrorHandler\ErrorHandler;
    $aConfig = array(
        'display_errors'        => true,
        'error_log_path'        => '/var/log/xyz.log',
        'error_reporting_level' => -1,
        'auth_error_suppr_op'   => false
    new ErrorHandler($aConfig);
  2. Ignore errors on some paths, useful with old libraries and deprecated code:

    $oErrorHandler = new ErrorHandler($aConfig);
    $oErrorHandler->addExcludedPath('[CouchbaseNative]', true);
