By default Ravada logs to syslog. Check the output of the ravada process in a terminal this way:
root@server:~# tail -f /var/log/syslog | grep rvd_

You can set a custom log file for the frontend process in the configuration.
Edit the configuration file: /etc/rvd_front.conf and add or change next section:

root@server:~# mkdir /var/log/ravada root@server:~# chown ravada /var/log/ravada
Now restart the Ravada front process and check the log file is created.
root@server:~# systemctl restart rvd_front
Security access will appear in the log file similar as an Apache log entry:
Login failures show with an access denied message:
A fail2ban catch can be created from these. Contributions welcome.
