This is actually the default in the recommended php.ini config in the
latest versions of PHP. I would argue this is good as it makes the
default configuration suitable for a production server (where you
definitely should not be throwing PHP errors at users).

You may wish to check your ErrorLog if your host gives you access to it.
All the error messages you are used to seeing should be logged there. If
you want them logged to the browser you should be able to set
display_errors = On via one of the various PHP methods for manipulating
settings (php.ini, httpd.conf, .htaccess, ini_set, etc.).

Hope that helps,
