Can I enable debug logging for all targets?
Debug Logging for a single target
When configuring a target, you can set debug logging to be enabled for all scans for this target...
...by enabling the checkbox in the last panel in the Target Settings page.
Debug Logging for ALL targets
If you need to set ALL your targets to generate debug logs, you can use a system-wide setting that will override the per-target configuration. You will need to manually edit the following text file with administrative rights:
- Windows: C:\ProgramData\Acunetix\settings.ini
- Linux: /home/acunetix/.acunetix/data/wvs.ini
- MacOS: /Applications/Acunetix.app/Contents/Resources/data/wvs.ini
Edit the file to add the following line to the end of the file:
Now, restart services using the following terminal commands:
Use a Command window with "Run as administrator":
net stop "Acunetix"
net stop "Acunetix Database"
net start "Acunetix Database"
net start "Acunetix"
sudo systemctl restart acunetix
sudo launchctl unload com.acunetix.AcunetixBackend.plist
sudo launchctl unload com.acunetix.AcunetixDatabase.plist
sudo launchctl load com.acunetix.AcunetixDatabase.plist
sudo launchctl load com.acunetix.AcunetixBackend.plist
All newly-created scans will now be executed with debug mode enabled.
