#21103 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

error_log() not called in wp-db.php when error_log setting is empty

Reported by: apimlott Owned by: nacin

Severity: normal Version: 3.4

The fix for #5771 is still not right. If the error_log setting in php.ini is empty (the default), errors should still be logged. (See http://www.php.net/manual/en/errorfunc.configuration.php#ini.error-log.) But in this case, ini_get('error_log') returns an empty string, so the iswritable check in wp-includes/wp-db.php line 935 (WordPress 3.4) fails and nothing is logged. Probably, there should be an test for empty string just as there is for 'syslog'.

Patch attached.

I was wrong about one thing. The is_writable check doesn't fail, it fails earlier because the empty return from ini_get is considered false. That's why I pulled the call to ini_get out of the condition.

Can't we just always call error_log()? The conditional, function_exists, and error suppression all seem unnecessary.

yeah, the whole thing looks like overkill
