Prestashop 1.7.1 | Enter in debug mode without entering in admin panel

The debug mode is used to see the errors on your shop and when:

  • you get blank pages;

  • you get 500 Internal Server Error;

  • you have strage issues with your shop and don’t know where to start;

Turn on the Debug mode on PrestaShop 1.7 is more simple comparing it to the previous versions of Prestashop.

You can enable it through FTP by accessing “config/” usually on line 29 you’ll find :

define('_PS_MODE_DEV_', false);

change in :

define('_PS_MODE_DEV_', true);

From now, you can see errors, and, once you’ll be able to access to admin pannell, you’ll can switch debug mode directly from “PrestaShop Dashboard > Advanced Parameters > Performance > DEBUG MODE PANEL

That’s all
