If you are experiencing problems with your Omeka S installation, or you want to turn on development-style error tracking, you will need to edit the .htaccess and local.config.php files. You must use a ftp or terminal client to do so; if you're not sure how to do this, please contact your system administrator or hosting provider.

  • The .htaccess file is located in the main folder of your Omeka S installation.
    • Change line 1 of that file from SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "production" to SetEnv APPLICATION_ENV "development"
  • The local.config.php file is located in the config folder.
    • Change line 4 from 'log' => false, to 'log' => true,
