Why aren't my logs showing up in the admin/logs window?

What to do when admin/logs is showing a blank screen instead of the usual code feed?

The first thing to check is whether the logs are being written to the looker/log directory. To check this:

  • cd into the looker/log directory
  • run tail -f looker.log

If logs aren't printed, they are possibly not being written or being redirected to another location. Looker needs the logs to be in the looker/log directory to make the admin/logs window work, so they will need to be both written and stored in that directory.
