Skip or Hide PHP errors / warnings

Errors are hints from compiler for the programmer to correct. But sometimes we face some unwanted or dynamic error.

For example,

$content = file_get_contents(;

Here , the url is invalid, or the server of the url is down , PHP shows Warning: Failed to open stream or file access is disabled.

Use @ in front of such function never shows any warning message.

For example,

$content = @file_get_contents(url here) or die (‘Sorry , cannot access the url’);

Another method is runtime PHP ini editing dynamically,

ini_set (‘display_errors’, 0);

//write the code which may cause error here

ini_set (‘display_errors’, 1);

But , these things are not recommended. Only for unavoidable situations.
