Where is the Log File?

Where are the log files for Mastodon? I checked in the ~/live folder and I see a folder called “logs” but nothing seems to be in there?

Thank you.


Mastodon does not manage its own logfile or log output, it relies on whatever process is running it to route its log output accordingly. (This is done according to the 12 factor app principles). On systemd-based init systems, this would be accessed using journald and also generally shows up in /var/log/syslog. On other systems, you’d have to look into how that system specifically handles logs.
