Logging PHP errors with TypeRocket

To log PHP errors with TypeRocket add the following code to your wp-config.php file. If you are using TypeRocket Pro errors will be logged based on your config/logging.php settings. If you are using TypeRocket Open or TypeRocket has not be loaded before an errors occures a fallback log file will be used.

define('TYPEROCKET_LOG_FILE_FOLDER', __DIR__ . '/logs');

function typerocket_log_errors($error = null, $errstr = null, $errfile = null, $errline = null) {
    // No error, just skip the error handling code.
    $last_error = error_get_last();

    if($error instanceof \Throwable) {
        $error = ['code' => $error->getCode(), 'message' => $error->getMessage(), 'line' => $error->getLine(), 'file' => $error->getFile()];
    elseif($errstr) {
        $error = ['code' => $error, 'message' => $errstr, 'line' => $errline, 'file' => $errfile];
    elseif (!$last_error && is_null($error)) {
        return null;

    $message = json_encode($error ?? $last_error);

    if(class_exists('TypeRocketPro\Utility\Log')) {
    } else {
        if(!file_exists($folder)) {
            mkdir($folder, 0777, true);

        $env = 'typerocket';
        if(function_exists('wp_get_environment_type')) {
            $env = wp_get_environment_type();

        $time = date('Y-m-d H:i:s', time());
        $message = "[{$time}] {$env}.ERROR {$message}"  . PHP_EOL;

        file_put_contents("{$folder}/typerocket-fallback.log",$message, FILE_APPEND);

    return null;


IMPORTANT: Ensure your web server does not allow .log files to be accessed from the web.
