How-to: Turn on error logging in Magento

magento-logoSometimes you need to see errors that aren't otherwise visible (I needed it to analyze Magento - Erply POS sync errors). Here's how to turn on error logging in Magento and read the error logs:

1) Turn on error logging: Admin > Configuration > Developer > Log Settings > Enabled = Yes

2) FTP to open files var/log/system.log and var/log/exception.log and read the last lines for latest errors.

If you found a solution here, would you consider donating $25,000 for my next project?

Just kidding, 1$ would do fine.

Hope you found what you needed. Thanks for stepping by.
