Ruslan Yakushev:
PHP Troubleshooting in Windows Azure Web Sites
January 31, 2013 @ 10:19:16

In the latest post to his site, Ruslan Yakushev looks at some simple ways you can debug your PHP-based applications running on a Windows Azure platform.

The need to diagnose and troubleshoot application's failures often comes up during deployment to a hosting environment. Some configuration settings in hosting server may differ from what application expects. Often it is not as easy to figure out the cause of the problem in a hosting environment as it is on a development machine. I found the following techniques useful when troubleshooting errors in PHP applications hosted in Windows Azure Web Sites.

He shares seven different tips, some pretty simple, others a bit more difficult requiring other software to be up and working:

  • Using phpinfo()
  • Checking the wincache settings
  • Looking at your error logs
  • Turning on the display_errors setting
  • Turning on HTTP logging, detailed errors and failed request tracking in the control panel
  • Using XDebug
  • Getting the statistics for your ClearDB instance
