    This is NOT good.

    May I suggest removing the @ symbol from dl.

    Either that, or make sure that displayError actually does something in config.inc.php

    Nothing worse than trying to debug a blank screen.

      Actually, the reason why displayError does nothing is because dl() dies a "fatal" death in some cases and script execution stops then and there. This is no screen output (as long as @ is in place).

      You NEED to keep displaying fatal errors. If you want to suppress WARNINGS/NOTICES then [temporarily] modify error_reporting

      $oldLevel = error_reporting(E_ERROR); // suspend fluff
      // insert dangerous statement here
      error_reporting($oldLevel); // put it back
