Where are my Lucee and Adobe ColdFusion log files on CommandBox servers?

Brad Wood |  April 10, 2017

As more people are starting to use CommandBox to start their Adobe ColdFusion and Lucee servers, I've gotten the question of where to find their log files.  The servers that CommandBox starts are full fledged servers with a web admin and all the same log files you'd expect.  However, CommandBox skips the vendor installer and uses the WAR files of each engine for a quick and lightweight deployment that can be deleted later and won't conflict with other servers, no matter how many you have.

This opens up all sorts of doors for scheduling cron jobs and whatnot that you can write in CFML much faster and easier than using bash or shell scripts. One common question is how to access the database from one of these scripts.
