log file


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_

Frontend log file

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:

Create the log directory and grant the Ravada user permissions to write to it:

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
