Is your debug.log file not generating in WordPress? To create this, all you may need is to allow this in your wp-config.php file.
Allowing the creation of debug.log
To allow the creation of debug.log, follow the steps below:
- Open an FTP connection to your server’s WordPress files.
- In the root of your WordPress directory, find and edit wp-config.php.
- Add in the code below, save and re-upload accordingly.
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true ); define( 'WP_DEBUG_LOG', true ); define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false ); @ini_set( 'display_errors', 0 );
The @ini_set will try to ensure that there are no errors displaying in your control panel.
Please note, your debug.log file is kept within the wp-content folder.
