How to Find the Logs on Your Minecraft Server

2 min. readlast update: 05.06.2024

Your Minecraft server logs are a valuable tool for troubleshooting issues with your server. For this guide, we'll be showing you how to access these logs on your own!

Accessing Server Logs

To access your server logs, simply follow the steps below:

Step One: Log In to Your Server Panel

Step Two: Go to the File Manager

Step Three: Open your Logs Folder

This folder will hold all of your server's logs from every startup and shutdown. The 'latest.log' file will hold all of the logs from the most recent startup, though you'll also find all the logs from all previous runs of the server as well. You'll have to download older logs in order to view them!

Bonus: Crash Reports!

Crash reports are typically generated if a server crashes at any point with a couple of exceptions that we'll go over in a moment. Crash reports are fundamental for understanding what may be going wrong with a server, and can easily diagnose problems such as missing dependencies and malfunctioning mods! Follow the steps below to access your crash reports:

Step One: Enter the File Manager

Step Two: Find the Folder Named 'crash-reports'

ℹ️ Note: If you don't see a crash-report folder, or the last crash report created was not when the last crash happened, it means one of two things:

1. The server crashed early during startup, and as such couldn't produce a crash report.

  1. the server ran out of RAM, which will NOT produce a crash report. If you do not see a crash report folder, check the console log or the logs mentioned above to see if there were any errors!
