1. Set in php.ini
display_errors = On; error_reporting = E_ALL;
2. In php.code
//If PHP config doesn't have error_reporting enabled, simply enable it at the top of your script: ini_set('display_errors', 1); //error_reporting sets which PHP errors are reported error_reporting(E_ALL);

Examples of errors
MySQL Error “Incorrect integer value “for column ‘name’ at row 1”
This error appear because mysql attempting to insert or update a row with the integer entry taking the default value 0 or NULL.
MySQL return this error because SQL_MODE is set in STRICT mode.
To find this setting you must go to phpmyadmin -> Information schema -> Global variables -> sort them downwards by the variable names and at pag 2 will find sql_mode.
To resolve this issue have to remove STRICT_TRANS_TABLES or set SQL_MODE to an empty string, sql_mode=””
After this change you should restart MySQL.
