Support » Plugin: Error Log Monitor » How should I set this up with Multisite?

  • Hi,
    I run this plugin on all of my sites. I installed the plugin on a site that is running multisite. There isn’t a bug or anything. Just not clear on how to configure it for multisite. I have a top level site and then a child site (just one right now). I plan to have more child sites in the future. There’s only one wp-config.php file, so I’m assuming that I should be monitoring things from the top level site only. If there’s a PHP error on the child site, will it be logged in the file specified in the top level site?

    Thanks in advance and Thank you for your plugin. Just wrote a 5-star review for it!

    I haven’t actually tested it with Multisite, but I can make an educated guess. As you said, there’s only one wp-config.php file, which means that settings in that file must apply to all sites. If the log file name is specified in wp-config.php, all PHP errors from WordPress will get logged in the same file. So as long as error logging is working at all, you will see messages from *all* child sites in the dashboard widget.

    On a multisite install, having this on the Network dashboard would be best. Unfortunately, at the moment, widget will only be displayed on the individual site dashboards. (Technically, it works fine.)

    It’s fairly easy to make the widget show up in the Network dashboard. I just made that change in the development version. I also adjusted the permissions to prevent regular administrators from clearing the log.

    This still isn’t full Multisite support, but at least you’ll be able to check the log without going to individual sites.
