display_errors In Divi Support Center
Divi has a really great feature called Support Center, where you can do lots of things like see the System Status, enable chat support, remote access, safe mode, and more!
The System Status gives recommendations for making your hosting server compatible and optimized for Divi. If you are like me, you want all of those dots to be green, but you may be struggling to know how.
How Did I Get Those Green Dots?
If you don’t have green lights like the image above, then please check out Siteground hosting! We use them for most of our clients sites, and we highly recommend them! If you want hosting that works extremely well with Divi and won’t cause any issues, then click our Siteground affiliate link to get started.
Right out of the box, Siteground meets or exceeds all of the recommended Divi hosting server settings except one, which we can easily change! This is not something most hosts can boast about and I think it is really great. But there is one that needs turned off, and that is something called display_errors. It is a PHP variable meant to show display errors to the developer during site creation, but is not useful for may users. Let’s turn it off and make our final dot green!
Disable Display Errors In Divi With Siteground Hosting
Now I will show you how easy it is to remove the display errors and make the dot green in the Divi Support Center System Status.
To begin, log in to your Siteground hosting account.
Then go to the “Site Tools” for your website.
Then click on “DEVS” in the left hand sidebar, and select “PHP Manager.”
Next, click on the tab called “PHP VARIABLES.” Here you will see a list of all the php variables available on your hosting account.
You may have to click on “Load More” to find “display_errors” from the list.
Once you locate “display_errors,” you will notice the value is set to “On.” We want to change that, so click on the edit icon on the right to change the value.
In the popup box, simply select “No” and then click “Confirm.”
Check Your Divi System Status
Now go back to your website to the Divi>Support Center and check the System Status. It will now offer congratulations for configuring your hosting account to be compatible and optimized for Divi!
You can click on “Show Full Report” to see all of the wonderful green dots! Isn’t that a good feeling knowing your site can now perform well?
