Debug Mode Switch for ProcessWire

This module for ProcessWire enables the debug mode to bypass the restriction to install modules. This is useful if you are tired to manually set the debug mode in the configuration.

Note


Please note that this module doesn't replace the real debug mode in the configuration file /site/config.php. With this module you will not receive any errors/notices/warnings like in the real debug mode. It serves only to bypass the restriction to install modules.

Installation


To install this module you have to enable the real debug mode. After installation you should deactivate debug mode again. To enable the real debug mode, download /site/config.php via FTP and open it in a text editor. Look for a line where you can find $config->debug = false; change it to $config->debug = true; save the file and upload it again. After module installation change it back to $config->debug = false;.

"Real Debug Mode"

For all future module installations, you just have to enable the debug mode in the module settings like described below. After module installation, you should deactivate it in the same way.

Settings


The settings for this module are located in the menu Modules=>Configure=>DebugModeSwitch.

"Settings"

Enable or deactivate debug mode


Set the checkmark (1) and click the submit button (2) will enable the debug mode (3). The debug mode can be also restricted for superusers only (4).

"Enable or deactivate debug mode"

Install and use modules at your own risk. Always have a site and database backup before installing new modules.
