When I set a configuration directive which has no value defined initially, ini_set returns FALSE, even though the call succeeded.


// bool(false)

var_dump(ini_set('error_log', '/tmp/foo'));
// bool(false)

// string(8) "/tmp/foo"

What's the bug here? If some ini setting is not set at all, what should be returned else than false?

So how do I tell the difference between when the call has failed or just that there was no previous value?

It uses the hardcoded defaults.  So theres really no chance it won't be set.
