Recovery Mode in WordPress

Recovery Mode was introduced in WordPress 5.2 version.

If the Recovery Mode is enabled, it will display an error message rather than a white screen when a plugin causes a fatal error.

PHP error messages and White screens are not displayed to users any more after WordPress 5.2. But there is a way to enable it in a development environment.

We can control disable the fatal error handler and recovery mode using WP_DISABLE_FATAL_ERROR_HANDLER in wp-config.php file.

How to disable the Recovery Mode?

To enable WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY, disable recovery mode by setting WP_DISABLE_FATAL_ERROR_HANDLER constant true.

This is how you can do it in WordPress version before 5.2:


define( 'WP_DISABLE_FATAL_ERROR_HANDLER', true );
define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true ); 

This is how you can do it in WordPress version 5.2 and later:


define( 'WP_DEBUG', true );
define( 'WP_DEBUG_DISPLAY', true ); 

How to check the Recovery Mode status?

You can check the status for the fatal error handler (Recovery Mode) by using wp_is_fatal_error_handler_enabled() function.
