I've been playing around with Craft 3.0 and am just about to develop a site using it. First thing I see when testing my frontpage template is "Internal server error", styled as a Craft error box.

So my question is simple, where is the log file for Craft 3.0? So I can see exactly what might be causing this?

Based on the official documentation the log files are under /storage/logs and look for the web.log file especially.

If you don't find anything check your webserver logs.


If you want to view the logs in the control panel in Craft 3, like was possible in Craft 2, then you will need to use this plugin: Logs

  • You can't view those server logs with the Yii2 Debug toolbar, can you? It was Brad Bell that pointed me to that plugin when I asked this same question via email, so I assume not, or he would have told me to use the toolbar too. :)

  • You can't see server logs in your toolbar but Craft logs and as far as I can see the plugin doesn't display server logs as well Commented Jul 9, 2018 at 7:42
