check your logs without leaving OXID backend
Whenever something went wrong, the first thing you should do is checking the logs: logs/EXCEPTION_LOG.txt and webserver error log.
Usually you have to connect over SSH or FTP to your server, download log files and open/reload the file in a text editor. It takes you about 15-30 seconds and 5 mouse clicks per log file. While developing modules, you might need to check the logs dozen times.
Don’t waste your time!
“dev-logs” module from my vt-devutils colelction extends your OXID admin panel with a log viewer for both exception and webserver error logs!
here is what you will get:
- exception and error log viewer in OXID admin panel
- search and filtering options
- copy to clipboard: you can copy the exception log message including your shop version and paste it to your dev buddies or oxid community forum
like it? you can get it here:
after module activation, you need to set the path to the webserver error log in module settings.
currently the module does not support x-debug!
