      Hello,
      Enable WordPress debug by setting the WP_DEBUG switch in the wp-config.php file to true, as per the following example:
      define( ‘WP_DEBUG’, true );
      Enable the generation of the debug log file by adding the following line to the wp-config.php file:
      define( ‘WP_DEBUG_LOG’, true );
      By default the WordPress debug log file is called debug.log and is created in the /wp-content/ WordPress subdirectory.
