Howto read the owncloud.log file? - didn' understand previous answer


#1

My problem is the same as in this post:
Howto read the owncloud.log file?
How am I supposed to read the owncloud.log log file? As I understand, the log file is json encoded and is a technical format - not made for human reading. But the given answer doesn't help me or I do not understand. It is written there: "this can be read from your admin user backend", but my user backend does not have any display of logfile-content. When looking at Settings... Administration... General... Log... there are only two lines: one with a dropdown-field to choose, what kind of information should be in the protocol (which is set to "errors and fatal problems" at the moment) an a second line with a button "download logfile".
And I don't find an app named "logreader" in the market.

You could download the log file and use an editor like sublime to make looking through the log file easier.


#3

Okay, this would be a way. But nevertheless I would like to know, how I can look at the last logfile entries (errors) directly from the admin user backend - which should be possible, as it was written in that post. What can I do to use this functionality inside the user backend?
