If you want to quickly enable the MySQL General Query Log without restarting MySQL Server, you can run these couple queries to start outputting all queries to a file located on disk

You can then run a command like “tail -f /var/log/mysql/all.log” to see the queries appear as your application runs. Note never enable this on anything other than a development environment, and make sure to turn it off once you are finished debugging or the disk will fill up
