Viewing Application Logs
Dokku application logs are accessible via a command line interface, directly on the server, or on your local machine if you've installed the Dokku Client.
Tailing application log for a specific application:
dokku logs my-app -t
Viewing the last 100 lines of the log:
dokku logs my-app -n 100
Viewing Nginx Logs
Nginx is used as a reverse proxy that routes traffic to Dokku app containers. Nginx logs can be found in the /var/log/nginx directory.
Viewing Archived Logs
Application logs are automatically moved to S3 for permanent storage. See Accessing Archived Logs for details.
Add-on: Elastic Stack
If you are looking for a more sophisticated solution for accessing and searching application logs, we also offer a dedicated stack consisting of Elasticsearch, Kibana, and Filebeat. See this announcement for details.
