Log files in a data room

Log files in a data room

Hello dear community,

I would like to read the log data from a certain data room to see how many times my files have been opened.

Is this somehow possible?

Friends of mine said that only Nextcloud it self has access to these log files.

Use the webserver’s access log (even a level above Nextcloud). There should be a lot of entries and you can just filter the access of a certain file. Here is a bit of background of the apache logs, what all the numbers mean:

From this document: - frank [10/Oct/2000:13:55:36 -0700] "GET /apache_pb.gif HTTP/1.0" 200 2326
You want to get the status codes 200, and the URL where your specific file is loaded.

As you see in the configuration, you can set it up a bit differently, mostly it’s similar to the combined log format. Nginx is similar, it might be different in some details, but the status codes etc. are the same.
