PHP logs not working, and unable to send mail through sendmail via PHP

P: n/a
Hoping someone can help me out with this problem. First problem, is I
am unable to view my php error log. In my php.ini I have my log in
/var/www/logs/php_error_log. However, it has remained empty.

Secondly, my sendmail works fine from command prompt. However, when
trying to send mail through a php script (I have tried a couple), it
says it is succesfull, but my mail logs show nothing going out. No
error messages. Can someone take a look at my snippets below of my
logging and my mail options and suggest some things for me to try
please? Thanks. :)

; About this file ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

; This is the recommended, PHP 4-style version of the php.ini-dist
file. It

; Error handling and logging ;
;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

; error_reporting is a bit-field. Or each number up to get desired
error
; reporting level
; E_ALL - All errors and warnings
; E_ERROR - fatal run-time errors
; E_WARNING - run-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
; E_PARSE - compile-time parse errors
; E_NOTICE - run-time notices (these are warnings which often
result
; from a bug in your code, but it's possible that
it was
; intentional (e.g., using an uninitialized
variable and
; relying on the fact it's automatically
initialized to an
; empty string)
; E_CORE_ERROR - fatal errors that occur during PHP's initial
startup
; E_CORE_WARNING - warnings (non-fatal errors) that occur during
PHP's
; initial startup
; E_COMPILE_ERROR - fatal compile-time errors
; E_COMPILE_WARNING - compile-time warnings (non-fatal errors)
; E_USER_ERROR - user-generated error message
; E_USER_WARNING - user-generated warning message
; E_USER_NOTICE - user-generated notice message
;
; Examples:
;
; - Show all errors, except for notices
;
;error_reporting = E_ALL & ~E_NOTICE
;
; - Show only errors
;
;error_reporting = E_COMPILE_ERROR|E_ERROR|E_CORE_ERROR
;
; - Show all errors
;
error_reporting = E_ALL

; Print out errors (as a part of the output). For production web
sites,
; you're strongly encouraged to turn this feature off, and use error
logging
; instead (see below). Keeping display_errors enabled on a production
web site
; may reveal security information to end users, such as file paths on
your Web
; server, your database schema or other information.
display_errors = On

; Even when display_errors is on, errors that occur during PHP's
startup
; sequence are not displayed. It's strongly recommended to keep
; display_startup_errors off, except for when debugging.
display_startup_errors = Off

; Log errors into a log file (server-specific log, stderr, or
error_log (below))
; As stated above, you're strongly advised to use error logging in
place of
; error displaying on production web sites.
log_errors = On

; Store the last error/warning message in $php_errormsg (boolean).
track_errors = Off

; Disable the inclusion of HTML tags in error messages.
;html_errors = Off

; String to output before an error message.
;error_prepend_string = "<font color=ff0000>"

; String to output after an error message.
;error_append_string = "</font>"

; Log errors to specified file.
error_log = /var/www/logs/php_error_log

; Log errors to syslog (Event Log on NT, not valid in Windows 95).
error_log = syslog

[mail function]

; For Unix only. You may supply arguments as well (default: "sendmail
-t -i").
sendmail_path = /usr/sbin/sendmail -t -i
sendmail_from = wa***@allcanadian.org
