How do I change the location of Alfresco's log files?

Jump to solution

I want to push all of my log files to a sub-folder in a different partition but right now they're all dumping into root or <Alfresco_DIR>/tomcat/logs. What settings in alfresco-global.properties do I change to achieve this? I saw a previous post on it with no complete explanation here:

That linked thread is extremely old, though the practice of configuring logging hasn't changed much since then at all. If you do a quick Google-search, you'll come across concise articles, like Toni de la Fuente‌'s Alfresco Tip: got the control and customize your logs (alfresco.log, share.log and solr.log)

Hi:

In addition to Axel's comment and Toni's post, there exist other logs managed by Tomcat when installing using Alfresco installer. For example, localhost, manager or host-manager logs are configured in $TOMCAT/conf/logging.properties. Localhost access logs are configured in valve's $TOMCAT/conf/server.xml. Finally catalina.out location may be configured in setenv.sh with CATALINA_OUT environment variable.

Regards.
