    I'm having a similiar issue. Moving a user from a system to a new system, and they're getting 500 errors that aren't logging. I've enabled display_errors, checked the local error_log, /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log, and in /home/USER/logs/

    The user wants the old condition back where if there was a PHP error on their server it would display in the browser. Now we can't even get the error to log on the new server, but a 500 is replied.

    Hello,

    Can you verify which PHP handler is assigned to the account (e.g. suPHP, DSO, PHP-FPM)?

    Thank you.

    Only CGI is showing in the PHP Handler section as an option, even though SuExec module is installed.

    Hello,

    Suexec isn't a PHP handler. We document the available PHP handlers and the considerations for using them at:

    PHP Handlers - EasyApache 4 - cPanel Documentation

    As far as the internal server error message (500 error code), that's an Apache error and thus should appear in the Apache error log (/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log). Are you sure the domain name resolves to the correct IP address?

    Thank you.

    Meant suPHP. CGI is the handler, and repeated 500 errors, but the error isn't logging to /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log.

    Quite sure as I've hardcoded the IP locally.

    I can see the 500 in /usr/local/apache/domlogs/domain.com, but the error isn't logged, and isn't shown in the browser, only a 500 is returned.

    I can enable suPHP, but why is cPanel not showing or logging the error under CGI mode, or displaying it in the browser?

    Switched to suPHP and error logs are generating now, not sure where they were going earlier while in the stock CGI mode.
