Hi Community

An upgrade on our web server's MariaDB last night was unsuccessful and took down all the databases.
I was alarmed to see our data sensitive connection details printed in php error displayed on our OpenCart website.
I've got Display Errors in dashboard settings set to No.

How do I hide sensitive connection details if there is a problem on the server again?

Thanks

Newbie

In your Shop ROOT php.ini file, set display_errors to OFF:
display_errors = Off;
(or: display_errors = Off for some yet unknown to me reason ... 8) ;) )

Is there an approriate chmod for php.ini? (If that's not a daft question.)

Any production server should have display_errors = Off by default. It seems many hosting servers out there don't do this. https://github.com/opencart/opencart/issues/7650

To ensure no errors are being displayed, a must for any live store, you need to do all of the following.
1. Set the PHP display_errors setting to Off (or 0 or false). This may need to be done in you main php.in, local php.ini, user.ini, .htaccess or hosting control panel, depending on you hosting setup.

2. Set $_['error_display'] to false in you system/config/default.php file (if there is one).

3. Set Display Errors to No in the OpenCart settings.

php.ini files should not have a semicolon at the end on a line. The semicolon indicates the start of a comment.

A semicolon on the end of a value can cause issues in some hosting configurations where the php.ini file is not processed directly by PHP. An example is cPanel with its MultiPHP INI Editor enabled. It will include the semicolon as part of the value leading to "charset `UTF-8;' not supported" errors.

Thanks for the information, I just have them in my 1.5.6.x Version, but I have been reading
about lately, and was not sure, if it possibly only concerns later OC Versions. And lucky me,
I never had any problems because of that either, since my brilliant Server seems to handle
that as planned. That's, why I figured to mention it, just to make sure... ;)
