Support » Plugin: Error Log Monitor » Unable to start plugin

  • I have installed and activated plugin. I created the file php-error.log using filezilla and placed it in the directory “logs” at the root (remote site: /logs) and ensured the file permissions.  Copied the code to wp-config.php.

    I get the error:  The log file /logs/php-errors.log does not exist or is inaccessible.

    I also tried the absolute path: /home/content/05/6493705/html/RockyMtnRafting/logs/php-errors.log

    I don’t get what I am missing.  Not sure if it is the right path or the file permissions.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Using the absolute path is the right choice. Did the error message change when you changed the path?

    Also, please double-check the permissions. The file must be readable by the web server. For example, compare the permissions of php-errors.log and files in /wp-content/uploads. In most setups they should be similar or identical.

    No change in error message using the absolute path.

    Permissions were the same as files in /wp-content/uploads.

    The error message shows the path as-is, so if it didn’t change, that probably means PHP didn’t actually apply your configuration changes. Perhaps it’s using a different configuration file, or there is a syntax error in the configuration directive, or the server needs to be restarted for the the changes to take effect.
