  1. Log in to your hosting Control Panel account - typically a cpanel or other account.
  2. Use the file manager and find the public_html folder.
  3. Locate the wp-config.php file for your WordPress website and edit it
  4. To enable WP_Debug, add the following code to the end of the file: define('WP_DEBUG', true);
  5. Save the file.
