    1. Login to your OpenCart Dashboard
    2. Go to System > Settings
    3. Select your store from the list and click “Edit
    4. Go to the “Server” tab
    5. Scroll towards the bottom


  1. To turn display errors “Off” so your visitors cannot see them change “Display Errors” to “No
  2. If you want to log errors to a file, select “Yes” for “Log Errors
  3. Enter in an “Error Log Filename
  4. Click “Save
