php return 500 error but no error log

am having an issue when I have a php application that is returning an internal server error (500) however nothing is showing up in the error log.

Now I know there are error with what I am trying to run, I know I have missing some files and what not but something should show in the apache error log (otherwise how are I supposed to know exactly what I am missing).

I created a test script is errors it in under the same vhost configuration and those error show up fine so everything seems configured right as far as php/apache. Are there certain php errors that does show up in the error log (php is configure to display any type of notice, warning, , error, fatal error, etc...)?

This is running on ubunut 10.04 with the standard apache and php from the ubuntu repo with apt-get.

Currently the "@" error-control operator prefix will even disable error reporting for critical errors that will terminate script execution. Among other things, this means that if you use "@" to suppress errors from a certain function and either it isn't available or has been mistyped, the script will die right there with no indication as to why.
