debug mode
How do I do debug mode - how do I turn it on and off, and where do I see it? I know how to look at the error_log file of my server - will it be there?

There is an "debug_level" option field in the admin panel in Setup -> Miscellaneous. You can change the number there to "1" to enable debug mode, or "0" to leave debug disabled. We don't recommend leaving debug on for extended periods of time as it does slow down the server. We also strongly recommend not setting the debug level to a value greater than 1 (the next release will use a Enabled/Disabled dropdown instead of the text field) because values of 2 and above have a serious performance impact in certain areas, and generally don't provide substantially more useful information.

The debugging output will appear in the server's error_log.

How do I turn debug mode before things are setup. I get an error when trying to connect to the database initially in setup.cgi. I get the error:

Error: Could not connect to database:

With no reason specified. I'm using version 1.2.3
