Turning off PHP Errors in WordPress

File: ./wp-config.php

Inside your wp-config.php file, look for the following line:

define('WP_DEBUG', true);

It is also possible, that this line is already set to false. In either case, you need to replace this line with the following code:

ini_set('error_reporting', E_ALL );
define('WP_DEBUG', false);
define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', false);

Don’t forget to save your changes and upload your wp-config.php file back to the server.

You can now visit your website to confirm that the PHP errors, notices, and warnings have disappeared from your website.

Turning on PHP Errors in WordPress

If you are working on a website on local server or staging area, then you may want to turn on error reporting. In that case you need to edit your wp-config.php file and replace the code you added earlier with the following code:

define('WP_DEBUG', true);
define('WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true);

This code will allow WordPress to start displaying PHP errors, warnings, and notices again.
