You know, I'm not sure. I always just leave the php.ini at default in  
that setting and that is where it logs.

Maybe load phpInfo(); and see if you can still see the default value.

I believe your php logging levels, like E_* play a role here as to  
what gets logged to screen/browser/stdout as well. More good info here:

And also related to some of your other questions.

If you move aside you php.ini and put a copy of php.ini(development),  
then look at your phpIfo(); output, it will tell you.

I suspect the log path is just commented ou in the ini default filet.

You could skip the loading of the php.ini and if your cool with diff  
or grep, just compare the ini sample files MacPorts installed.

php.ini for me, sends logging to Apache's error_log. It always has.

When I get back to my computer and off my phone I will confirm.
