Is it possible to also view the wp-admin/error_log or debug.log ??

It’s difficult to comprehend how such plugins make it to wp.org. This plugin attempts to load the error_log.txt file, which typically does not exist on WordPress, except perhaps at the plugin author’s setup. In fact, if not intentionally changed, the default log file when WP_DEBUG is enabled is located at /wp-content/debug.log. However, this plugin tries to load the error_log from the root site folder for some unknown reason. Not only it does not know the default log file location, but it also does not check if we have deliberately modified the WP_DEBUG_LOG path and in that way defined another log file. All in all, it shows a serious lack of professionalism. It is a total waste of time. Don’t waste yours.
