I added the following to my php.ini:

log_errors = on
error_log = /home/djeyewater/logs/php-errors.log

and modified the spawn-fcgi init script like so:

$FCGI_DAEMON -s $FCGI_SOCKET -C $PHP_FCGI_CHILDREN -P $FCGI_PIDFILE -- $FCGI_PROGRAM -c /home/djeyewater/webapps/php_fcgi/lib/php.ini 2>>/home/djeyewater/logs/php-fcgi-err.log

Not sure if that is the correct way to read stderr from spawn-fcgi?

Anyway, after restarting php I got no errors (from the page I'm having problems with) recorded in the php error log or the spawn-fcgi stderr file. Still get the same error in the nginx error log for the site, and obviously the page still isn't working.

Could you advise me on how I'd get the error message to be recorded?
