Fix Magento Error Message “Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons”

Sometimes when Magento exceptions out, it gives the message:
“Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons”
To remove this message, follow the steps below:

Step 1:
Copy the file errors/local.xml.sample and name it as errors/local.xml

Step 2:
Modify the configuration to suit your needs - the xml is very well commented and self-explanatory. For leaving the error log files on the server for future reference as well as email it to the store admin, the config should be setup as below:

            "action" can be set to "print" to show exception on screen and "email"
            to send exception on specified email
            in "subject" you can set subject of email
        <subject>Store Debug Information</subject>
            "email_address" admin email address
            "trash" is handle about trace info
            value "leave" is for store on disk
            value "delete" is for cleaning

In your magento installation, search for the file named "local.xml.sample" in the "errors" folder and then follow the instructions - Hope that helps.
