I am getting a white error page in the Dashboard. How can I find out what the error is?[edit]

Seeing an full error stack trace for the Dashboard requires knowing how to edit a configuration file from the command line.

  1. SSH to the Archivematica server
  2. With your preferred text editor, open the dashboard settings file (vim shown in example; Note that you must use sudo to edit this file):
    sudo vim /usr/share/archivematica/dashboard/settings/
  3. Change the "DEBUG" flag from "False" to "True"
    DEBUG = True
  4. Save the file
  5. Restart Apache
    sudo apache2ctl restart
  6. Reload the dashboard page reporting the error in your browser
  7. Debug or report error
  8. Restore DEBUG to False and restart Apache to turn error reporting off again
