Store logs for longer time


What do I need to change to store Confluence logs for longer time? I would like to have them for more then one month.

Best Regards

Hi Artur,

Check for any cronjob or any script on your server for auto deleting logs file older than 1 month.


Hi Taha, Thanks for the tip! I just checked this on our server and I can't find any :( Are there other possible solutions? Maybe there is something in confluence code that needs to be changed? BR Artur

Hi Artur,

Since I do not know which Server OS you are using, it could be that your setenv script (either batch or shell) has setup logging parameters for the JVM? If you are on Linux, you could use the script logrotate to compress and store as many logs as you like.

If you do require further assistance, you might want to open a Support ticket to insure that you get your questions answered. 


Hi Chuck, I think I will have to do this :) BR Artur
