How to View Logs & Events of Your Server in xCloud: Step-By-Step Guide #

Server Logs: 

There are two types of logs you can see in server logs – Nginx Access Log & Nginx Error Log. For each log, you’ll get information such as IP, Method, Datetime, Browser & the Message. However, you can reload and delete your server logs with 1-click from your dashboard.

Server Events:

In the Events tab, you’ll get each second activity update of your server and all sites under your server. Each event is generated with a serial number, event name, the name of who initiated the activity, status, & Actions. You can view any actions by clicking on ‘View’ under ‘Action.’

Site Logs:

You’ll get 4 types of logs in your xCloud site log: WordPress Debug Log, Nginx Log, Nginx Access Log, and Nginx Error Log along with the path for each log.

✅ WordPress Debug Log: The WordPress debug log (e.g., /var/log/nginx/shifat-resl.wp1.site-access.log), often referred to as debug.log, is a file that records error messages, warnings, and other debugging information generated by WordPress and its plugins or themes. 

✅ Nginx Log: Nginx log (e.g., /var/log/nginx/shifat-resl.wp1.site*.log) is like a diary for your website. It keeps track of who visits, what they do, and if there are any issues. Having Nginx logs is crucial because it helps you understand how your website is performing, who your visitors are, and if there are any errors or problems.

✅ Nginx Access Log: Nginx Access Log (e.g., /var/log/nginx/shifat-resl.wp1.site-access.log) is more similar to Nginx Log. The log notes down details like who visited your site, what pages they looked at, and when they visited & gives you insights into your website’s traffic and helps you make decisions about how to improve your site.

✅ Nginx Error Log: The Nginx error log (e.g., /var/log/nginx/shifat-resl.wp1.site-error.log) is a record of errors that occur on your Nginx web server. It keeps track of any problems or issues that happen while your website is running. Having an Nginx error log is important because it helps website owners and developers identify and fix problems quickly.

Moreover, you can reload and clear any type of your site logs anytime with a single click on ‘Reload’ and ‘Clear.’

Note: In xCloud Logs, the latest 50 logs will be displayed.

Site Events:

Similar to server events, you can see specific site events too. In the Events tab, you’ll get each second activity update of your site. Each event is generated with a serial number, event name, the name of who initiated the activity, status, & Actions. You can view any actions by clicking on ‘View’ under ‘Action.’

That’s it. By following the above steps, you can view logs and events of your server and site easily. Still have any queries? Contact our support team, they are just a text away.
