I'm following this post
to generate error logs in wordpress. Have also tried a lot of other tricks. I just cannot generate the log file that has errors.

And I'm sure there are errors because I have made a buggy plugin myself.

Thank you for your question about WordPress error logs. I recommend following our guide on Turning on WordPress debugging.

It includes the following line of code that may provide more detailed error information:
define( 'SCRIPT_DEBUG', true );

If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.

Thank you,

Ok, I did that but where do I get to see the errors?
I do not see them on the WP Admin console, neither do I find any debug.log etc in the filesystem.

Hello buildwithcards,

Thank you for your question. The official WordPress codex on debugging states:
"Enabling WP_DEBUG will cause all PHP errors, notices and warnings to be displayed. "

So any errors that are generated will be displayed on the page. If you are not seeing any errors on the page or in your logs ("WP_DEBUG...causes all errors to also be saved to a debug.log log file inside the /wp-content/ directory.") , then no errors are being generated.

Thank you,
