Where Are WordPress Logs?

WordPress does not create logs by default. However, you can enable logging to help diagnose issues or monitor events on your website. The most common type of log in WordPress is the debug log, which records PHP errors, warnings, and notices.

To enable the debug log, follow these steps:

Access your WordPress installation’s root directory using an FTP client or your web hosting control panel’s file manager.
Locate the “wp-config.php” file in the root directory and open it for editing.
And use define ‘WP_DEBUG’ and set it to true.
Use define ‘WP_DEBUG_LOG’ and set it to true.

It will enable logging.

WordPress can log PHP errors, warnings, and notices to a file named “debug.log” in the “wp-content” directory.
You can access this file using your FTP client or your web hosting control panel’s file manager.

Keep in mind that it’s best to disable debug logging on a live site once you have resolved the issues, as the log files can grow large over time and may expose sensitive information.

Additionally, your web server may have its logs (e.g., access logs or error logs) stored in a different location determined by the server configuration. You can typically access these logs through your web hosting control panel or consult your hosting provider for more information.
