PHP Throwing Exceptions

Error reporting is off? For a while now Workspaces does not work properly for me.

If there are errors, warnings or exceptions I just get a HTTP 500 error. How is it possible?

I have to do ini_set() but it makes no sense...

The working version:

ini_set('display_errors', 'On');

class myData
{
  function getData()
  {
    if( !$file = fopen("data.txt", "r")) {
      throw new Exception('Unable to access file');
    }
  }
}

$data = new myData();

try {
  $data->getData();
} catch(Exception $e) {
  echo $e->getMessage();
}

echo "End of File";
