How to Find and Share Any Minecraft Log

When troubleshooting an issue with your Minecraft server, logs can help you diagnose and tackle the problem at hand. 

Shockbyte Staff may also ask for logs to quickly identify any issues. There are many types of logs, and this guide will help you locate them. 

HOW TO FIND AND SHARE YOUR SERVER CONSOLE LOG

Accessing and sharing your server's console log is easy.

  • Navigate to your server's control panel.
  • Click Console on the left sidebar.
  • Click Share log text below the server console window.

Your server's console log includes everything that happened on your server, that's why they are a go-to for finding information while troubleshooting server-side issues. 

HOW TO FIND AND SHARE YOUR SERVER'S CRASH REPORTS

Note: Not all crashes produce crash reports.

Console logs are useful, but they do not include in-depth information on the server crashes themselves. Crash reports contain information including what mods were loaded during the crash and where or when exactly the crash occurred.

  • Navigate to your server's control panel and Stop your server.
  • Navigate to Files > FTP Access.
  • Select crash-reports folder.
  • Sort the directory by Mod time and edit the latest crash report.

  • Copy all of the text and paste it into our Hastebin.
  • At the top right, click Save and copy the generated link in your address bar to share the log.

HOW TO FIND AND SHARE YOUR CLIENT LOG (Windows 10 or Windows 11)

Minecraft also keeps client-side logs, which are saved to your computer. These logs contain all information regarding what happens on your local game installation.

FINDING LOGS FOR VANILLA OR MODDED MINECRAFT VERSIONS

  • On your keyboard press Windows Key + R at the same time. This will open a Run dialogue box usually in the bottom left of your screen.
  • Copy this string %appdata%/.minecraft/logs into the Run dialogue field and press OK.

  • Locate the file named latest.log and open it with any text editing program.
  • Click on the text, then use a combination of Ctrl+A followed by Ctrl+C to copy it.
  • Paste the text using Ctrl+V into our Hastebin.
  • At the top right, click Save and copy the generated link in your address bar to share the log.

FINDING LOGS FOR CURSEFORGE MODPACKS

The CurseForge launcher makes installing modpacks much easier. It creates separate Minecraft instance folders, each containing all necessary files, including log files.

  • Open the CurseForge launcher, and click the Minecraft logo on the left sidebar.
  • Right-click the modpack you are working with and select Open Folder.
  • Navigate to the logs folder and open the file named latest.log.
  • Click on the text, then use a combination of Ctrl+A followed by Ctrl+C to copy it.
  • Paste the text using Ctrl+V into our Hastebin.
  • At the top right, click Save and copy the generated link in your address bar to share the log.
