Filesystem Overview


Explain our filesystem hierarchy



Logs normally reside in a subdirectory of /var/log.

For cdedb related logs (i.e. entries generated by the python application itself) you should look inside /var/log/cdedb. Logs are split by frontend/backend and their realms.

Apache saves its logs under /var/log/apache2. The log most relevant for debugging is ssl_error.log. It contains not only errors from apache itself but also unhandled exceptions thrown from the cdedb application.
