Tips and tricks on developing web sites

wp-config.php Development Server

Once you have WordPress up and running, you need to change a few settings in your development environment. Locate your website folder. In this case, we used htdocs\public_html (or htdocs\example.com).

Open wp-config.php, scroll down to the wp-debug line and change it from false to true. This allows PHP errors and warnings to be displayed as you work on the site.

define( 'WP_DEBUG', false ); becomes 
define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );

If you have downloaded your site to work on it offline, you may see a cache option in the wp-config.php file. You want to disable caching so change it to false. If it isn’t in there do nothing.

define( 'WP_CACHE', true); becomes 
define( 'WP_CACHE', false );
