Magento. How to display error messages

To make the error readable and easier to understand, please do the following:

magento-error-display-1

  1. Open your Magento installation directory. Go to the errors folder.

  2. Rename local.xml.sample file to local.xml.

  3. Refresh the error page in browser.

    magento-error-display-2

  4. Now you can use the error text and search our Help Center or Google for a solution.

However, sometimes renaming the local.xml.sample file is not working. There is another solution which we can use to display errors in Magento:

  1. Open your Magento installation directory. Locate and open index.php file.

  2. Search for error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT); code.

  3. Comment it out like that:

    /*error_reporting(E_ALL | E_STRICT);*/
    
  4. And use the following code instead:

    error_reporting(E_ALL);
    $_SERVER['MAGE_IS_DEVELOPER_MODE'] = true;
  5. Also, locate the following code:

    #ini_set('display_errors', 1);
  6. Uncomment it by removing the # sign, so it looks like that:

    ini_set('display_errors', 1);
  7. Save this file and upload to the server. Reload your website page to see errors.

Now you know how to display error messages in Magento.
