Best choice for server log file

Discussion in 'Site Programming, Development and Design' started by Dave Elderkin, Jul 28, 2015.

  1. I'd like to have my server write a log file. Nothing exotic, just a debugging tool.

    Is there a best choice for the way to do this? Use NULOG? Write to a particular directory?

  2. The server already writes to a log file. You might want to see if the raw logs will give you what you need before you go to the trouble of implementing your own logging.

    In Control Panel go to Site Tools > Raw Logs to enable the ability to download the logs. Within 24 hours the first log should be available.

    There's more info in this Knowledge Base article.

  5. Thanks, Fred. This is just what I'm after.
  6. I should have picked up on that when you said "debugging."

    Well, now you know where the raw logs are. ;)
