To enable debugging in Codeigniter, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the application/config/config.php file in your Codeigniter project.
  2. Find the line $config['debug'] = FALSE; and change it to $config['debug'] = TRUE;
  3. Save the file and exit.

With debugging enabled, Codeigniter will display error messages and debug information on your pages, which can be helpful for debugging and troubleshooting your application.

You can also customize the level of debugging output by setting the $config['log_threshold'] configuration item. For example, you can set it to 1 to show errors only, 2 to show errors and debugging messages, or 4 to show errors, debugging messages, and profiler data.

Finally, you can control where the debugging output is displayed by setting the $config['log_path'] configuration item. By default, debugging output is written to the application/logs directory, but you can change this to any other directory on your server.

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions.

To enable debug mode in CodeIgniter, you need to modify the index.php file in the root directory of your CodeIgniter application.

  1. Locate the following line in index.php:
define('ENVIRONMENT', isset($_SERVER['CI_ENV']) ? $_SERVER['CI_ENV'] : 'production');

  1. Change the environment value from 'production' to 'development' to enable debug mode:
define('ENVIRONMENT', isset($_SERVER['CI_ENV']) ? $_SERVER['CI_ENV'] : 'development');

  1. Save the file and reload your CodeIgniter application.

Debug information such as error messages, database queries, and other related information will now be displayed on the screen. Note that enabling debug mode should only be done in development environments and not in a production environment, as it may expose sensitive information.
