I am new to Magento. Please tell me where the errors are stored in Magento?
1. After Magento Installation, you should set the developer mode by this command
php bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer
By setting Developer Mode, Errors are displayed in the browser and can be seen by users.
2. You can check the errors for
Errors that get in var/reports are more detailed.
3. This will display PHP errors in the browser.
You can enable
display error reporting from
index.php in magento root directory
index.php, you can add below code after the starting of
ini_set('display_errors', 1); error_reporting(E_ALL);
4. Enable Template Path Hints
The ‘Template path hints’ is a diagnostic tool that adds notation with the path on each template of Magento 2 platform, login to your Magento 2 Admin panel,
STORES > Configuration > ADVANCED > Developer > Debug >
Set Enabled Template Path Hints for Storefront, Enabled Template Path Hints for Admin, and Add Block Class types to Hints to YES.
5. Remove Cache:- Always remember to
cache:flushafter the changes, this will solve most of the problems and give permission to
chmod -R 777 var/ pub/ generated/ php bin/magento cache:clean php bin/magento cache:flush rm -rf var/generation/ var/view_preprocessed/ pub/static/frontend/ pub/static/_requirejs/ var/cache var/di var/page_cache pub/static/_cache
Hope it helps.
Logs will be presented in the following folder in magento 2,
Each log is intended for capturing different logs.
You can also check errors directlr in browser if you change the Magento mode to developer if it is used in local environment.Initially it will be in default mode
It can be changed in following file,
'MAGE_MODE' => 'developer'
See Magento error reports in the
Generally, you can see 2 files there: system.log and exception.log.
Magento 2 runs in the production mode (not developer mode) then it does not show the actual error message on the screen, but shows a generic message: There has been an error processing your request and creates a detailed error report in the var/reports folder. You can find the error report file there by its report ID which is shown on the screen.
