Xibo Log Information
The CMS has a central repository for all Log information, including the Players which send back Log information with each collection from the CMS.

|Page||The page requested - usually the route|

Finding your message
Understanding the log can be complicated in a busy system and it can often be hard to find messages related to your interest. The log can be filtered for this purpose, it is usually best to start with the Channel, then the Function and finally (if necessary) the Page.

The default log location is the database which can be viewed from the CMS log page. It may be desirable to log to a different location, depending on your use case.
The CMS supports adding new log handlers that confirm to the PSR log handler format - we recommend Monolog. To add log handlers simply append to the
$logHandlers array in
For example to add a file log handler:
$logHandlers = [new \Monolog\Handler\StreamHandler(PROJECT_ROOT . '/log.txt')];
