The Kendis system offers an extensive logging mechanism if you face some issues while using Kendis in your local self-hosted setup.
These logs provide ways for the Kendis team to identify the issues you are facing and provide the remedy.

Default Logs 

By default, Kendis keeps a minimum log set and it's always saved under the "kendis.log" file. If the size of the file increases, then the Kendis system will start splitting the file and add numbers like "Kendis.log.1", "Kendis.log.2" The file with the highest number would be the latest.
