Subject [jira] [Commented] (GUACAMOLE-333) Add location of log files for Ubuntu distribution
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2017 20:30:00 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/GUACAMOLE-333?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=16063716#comment-16063716
] 

Michael Jumper commented on GUACAMOLE-333:
------------------------------------------

Just as the manual shouldn't be expanded to cover distribution-specific installation instructions,
set up of remote desktop servers, etc., enumerating all the various log file locations used
by mainstream Linux distributions for each servlet container is out of scope. As it is the
distribution's own packaging which determines the locations of those files, it's really the
responsibility of those distributions to document their package behavior.

Regarding Ubuntu specifically, they do provide a guide for setting up Tomcat, though it is
missing the log file locations:

https://help.ubuntu.com/lts/serverguide/tomcat.html

Perhaps that would be a more appropriate place to address this?

> I would suggest it should read:
> _Troubleshooting Guacamole usually boils down to checking either syslog or your servlet
container's logs (likely Tomcat). In Ubuntu 16.04, these logs are located at /var/log/tomcat8/catalina.out_
, and/or provide a link to say where they are on various distributions. For users that aren't
super comfortable with web services and are just trying to get Guac working, this would be
helpful.
