Logging Enterprise Server 9 activity

Logging Enterprise Server 9 activity

The low-level debug logging feature is used for storing all SQL queries and Web service details for debugging purposes.

IMPORTANT: With low-level logging turned on, the file size of the log files will keep growing, thereby consuming disk space and reducing performance.

About the structure

Files are written to the defined logging directory in the following structure:


  • ‘day’ directory: this represents the day (in YYYYMMDD format) on which a log operation took place. This bundles all logging operations on a daily basis, thereby making it easy to clean up. For example, you can throw away directories older than one week manually or by your home-brewed batch job.
  • ‘client IP’ directory: this is created within the ‘day’ folder whenever logging was done in context of a certain client application. The client works from a certain IP address which is used as the folder name. Logging written for all applications working from that IP are bundled in this directory which makes it easy to for example identify problematic work stations. This directory contains HTML files (or text files) named after the PHP module used as entry point by the client application, or the name of the Web service requested.

Type of files that are logged

The following files can be found in the logging directory tree:

  • File name: ent_log_errors.htm
  • Location: This file might appear in a ‘client IP’ directory.
  • Description: Indicates that an ERROR has occurred for this client. The full context can be found in any of logged files in the same folder.
  • File name: phpinfo.htm:
  • Location: This file always appears in the ‘day’ folder and in the ‘client IP’ folder. For performance reasons it is only generated once per day, just before the first server operation gets executed.
  • Description: Contains valuable information for analysis. When contacting WoodWing Support, please make sure to include this file.
  • File names: sce_profile_mysql.htm, sce_profile_mssql.htm, or sce_profile_oracle.htm.
  • Description: Server profile logs containing information about how long operations take and how much memory is used.

Note: Only available with DEBUGLEVELS is defined as INFO or DEBUG, and PROFILELEVEL is set in a range of 1 to 5.

Enabling low-level logging
