PHP Array Exercises : Difference of two multidimensional arrays

PHP Array: Exercise-57 with Solution

Write a PHP function to compares two multidimensional arrays and returns the difference.

Sample Solution:

PHP Code:

function key_compare($a,$b)
    return 0;
function multidimenssional_array_diff($arr1, $arr2)
return array_diff_uassoc($arr1['c'], $arr2['c'],"key_compare");
//multidimenssional arrays
print_r(multidimenssional_array_diff($color1, $color2));

Sample Output:

    [a] => Green                                            
    [b] => Blue

PHP: Tips of the Day

PHP: Where does PHP store the error log? (php5, apache, fastcgi, cpanel)

PHP stores error logs in /var/log/apache2 if PHP is an apache2 module. Shared hosts are often storing log files in your root directory /log subfolder. But...if you have access to a php.ini file you can do this:

error_log = /var/log/php-scripts.log

According to rinogo's comment: If you're using cPanel, the master log file you're probably looking for is stored (by default) at


If all else fails you can check the location of the log file using

<?php phpinfo(); ?>
