It helps get access to a site’s error log, even for lay users without contacting web hosts or filesystem access. Really useful in debugging in support. Also useful as a teaching/learning tool for basic technical debugging too.

Thank you for this great plugin which saves time on backing up wp-config.php and turning on debug mode. Eliminates mistakes which might otherwise be introduced when manually changing wp-config.php and allows faster debugging.

Even though updates have been a while (at least at the time of writing this), the plugin still works well and serves its purpose.

С активацией плагина перекосило весь сайт окончательно. Не помогло даже его удаление с сайта. Все записи в админке стали из иероглифов. Хорошо, что получилось из резервной копии на хостинге сайт восстановить, а то слало как то очень хреново от увиденного.

This plugin has helped me rescue many client sites when they can’t figure out how to enable WP_DEBUGon their own. I know it hasn’t been updated in forever, but it is still working for me as of WordPress 5.3.
