Where are the GWAVA logs located?


The GWAVA logs are located in the same location for every installation.


/opt/beginfinite/gwava/services/logs/[module name]/support


C:\Program Files\GWAVA\GWAVA\services\logs\[module name]\support

The installation directory may vary, depending on which directory was selected during the installation.

There should be at least following folders in the logs directory.

Inside of each of these folders is subdirectory called support.
The log files in the support folder contain diagnostic logging which is most valuable.

If you have an open ticket with the GWAVA Support, you will always be asked for the logs in the support folder.
When you open a new support ticket please attach the support log(s) that match your issue.
