Server Logs

Centova Cast provides direct access to the log files created by your streaming server.

The server logs may be accessed using the Logs link under the Statistics heading in the navigation menu.

Log Types

By default, the access log for your server is displayed. To view the error or autoDJ logs, click the appropriate link at the upper right-hand corner of the log viewer.

Each log has a distinct and important purpose:

  • Access Log
    The access log is generated by your streaming server, and records information about each successful connection between a listener and your streaming server. This information is used by Centova Cast to generate statistics for your stream.

  • Error Log
    The error log is generated by your streaming server and, despite its name, it records much more than just errors -- it is a general record of diagnostic information about the various internal activities of the streaming server.

    If a problem occurs with your streaming server, the diagnostic information in the error log will be very useful in diagnosing the problem.

  • AutoDJ Log
    The autoDJ log is generated by your autoDJ software, and records diagnostic information about the various internal activities of the autoDJ.

    If a problem occurs with your autoDJ, the diagnostic information in the autoDJ log can help in diagnosing the problem.

The precise format of the logs displayed will vary depending on the streaming server and autoDJ software being used by your hosting provider. If you require assistance, please contact your hosting provider.

Downloading the Logs

If your hosting provider has enabled this option, you may see a Download link at the upper right-hand corner of the log viewer.

This link allows you to download all log files in a ZIP archive for offline review and/or archival.
