Can someone explain this to me:
; Default Value: On
; Development Value: Off
; Production Value: Off

When exactly is it "On" then?

@andrioid "Default" is the value if you don't explicitly set it in your php.ini file. "Development" and "Production" are the values the PHP team recommends for those environments. See also

@ellotheth Thanks for the clarification. IMO, it's still weird to have defaults that you don't recommend. Not in prod or dev 😀

@andrioid Yeah, maintaining backwards compatibility is hard! You want to promote good practices with defaults, but you also don't want to break code that's been running fine for a decade.


@ellotheth Every programmer knows that old decisions hurt the most 😆
