HOW TO GET LOGS

DIFFICULTY: EASY

What are logs and why do we need them?

Retrieving server logs is often important in order to figure out what the issue is with your server. They show all recent activities on the server and provide error and warning messages which can show you the issue. Logs show commands that users are entering, certain events such as deaths and if there are any plugin issues.

How do I retrieve logs?

Logs can be retrieved through 2 methods, in-game and through the panel. We recommend you always get logs from the panel because in some instances you may not be able to connect to your server and will not be able get them through this method.

Method One (Through the panel):

  • Getting logs is easy, first head over to your server panel and start up the server you want to get the logs of. 
  • Once the server has started up, head over to the file manager section of the panel and all your server files will appear.
  • You need to go into the logs folder, then into the latest.logs file and you will find the logs.

Method Two (In-game):

  • Logs are easier to obtain in-game, simply type /dl logs and wait a couple of seconds.
  • The server will return you a link to a site with the logs, just download them onto your device.

If you’re unsure about the logs and need community support:

  • Head over to a site like Pastebin or Hastebin and copy and paste your logs into the site and upload them.
  • Copy the link to your Pastebin or Hastebin and go to our Discord or forums and ask for help, include the logs so people will be able to help you as soon as possible.

how do you read past logs like from 3 days ago

 

Unfortunately old logs are automatically deleted after a new log file is used, so you wouldn't be able to access old logs.

How did you get them? If the file extension is .jar then you need to extract them. They should be .txt to be humanly readable.

Hey there.

I get what you mean.

It's a compressed log to save disk space, but it can be easily uncompressed with a regular desktop software such as WinRAR. Since there isn't a way to download the file, it's impossible to download it (unless you know how to use the Minehut API to obtain the file).

Yeah, it only shows up that for compressed log, and not the latest.log. 😮

You can go through the Minehut's API Documentation at https://api.bennydoesstuff.me/.

After that, you can use https://api.minehut.com/ to send requests (if you know how to do that).

The older compressed logs are currently not readable. You can only read the latest.log. But they are currently making a new file manager which will allow you to read the older logs right in the panel and even download them.

How do I get method 2 to work?

I tried /dl logs in game but it just tells me that it is not a command.

this CFAQ is old and outdated. The second method has been removed. The only way to access logs now is by using method one through the file manager.
