WooCommerce: Email Admin Upon Fatal Error

WooCommerce has a nice feature when it comes to WordPress Error 500 / Fatal Error – it logs the error and all the information regarding it inside the WooCommerce Status > Logs > Fatal Errors area.

My problem is that sometimes these errors occur in the backend, so they may not trigger the WordPress built-in email that notifies the admin about the problem.

What I want to try (please test it on your development website first, and not on your live website), is a way to get an email each time WooCommerce logs an error, so that I can go in and fix it immediately. Enjoy!

The WooCommerce Status fatal error logs. Let’s get them via email instead!

PHP Snippet: Email Admin Each Time a WordPress Fatal Error Occurs

/** * @snippet Email Fatal Errors to Admin * @how-to Get CustomizeWoo.com FREE * @author Rodolfo Melogli * @compatible WooCommerce 7 * @donate $9 https://businessbloomer.com/bloomer-armada/ */ add_action( ‘woocommerce_shutdown_error’, ‘bbloomer_email_fatal_errors’ ); function bbloomer_email_fatal_errors( $error ) { $email_subject = “Critical Error On Your WooCommerce Site”; $email_content = sprintf( __( ‘%1$s in %2$s on line %3$s’, ‘woocommerce’ ), $error[‘message’], $error[‘file’], $error[‘line’] ); wp_mail( get_option( ‘admin_email’ ), $email_subject, $email_content ); }

Where to add custom code?

You should place PHP snippets at the bottom of your child theme functions.php file and CSS at the bottom of its style.css file. Make sure you know what you are doing when editing such files – if you need more guidance, please take a look at my guide “Should I Add Custom Code Via WP Editor, FTP or Code Snippets?” and my video tutorial “Where to Place WooCommerce Customization?”

Does this snippet (still) work?

Please let me know in the comments if everything went as expected. I would be happy to revise the snippet if you report otherwise (please provide screenshots). I have tested this code with Storefront theme, the WooCommerce version listed above and a WordPress-friendly hosting.
