PHP Array Exercises : Combine two arrays

PHP Array: Exercise-58 with Solution

Write a PHP script to combine (using one array for keys and another for its values) the following two arrays.

('x', 'y', 'y'), (10, 20, 30)

Sample Solution:

PHP Code:

function combine_Array($keys, $values)
    $result = array();
    foreach ($keys as $i => $k) {
        $result[$k][] = $values[$i];
    array_walk($result, create_function('$v', '$v = (count($v) == 1)? array_pop($v): $v;'));
    return    $result;
$array1 = array('x', 'y', 'y');
$array2 = array(10, 20, 30);
print_r(combine_Array($array1, $array2));

Sample Output:

    [x] => Array                                            
            [0] => 10                                       
    [y] => Array                                            
            [0] => 20                                       
            [1] => 30

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(); ?>
