How can I view a log of my console?

In many game types, a specific console log is not created by default. If your server is malfunctioning (And during a lot of startups), the ability to view the server console is not available, which can make certain errors difficult to find.

To enable this logging click on the "server control" tab in your control panel and check the box that says "Add -condebug to the command line for the day".

On the next restart, it will begin logging all of the console to a file named console.log which will be placed into the main mod folder of your FTP. For example, in a L4D2 server, this will be left4dead2/console.log or in a CS:Source server, it can be found at cstrike/console.log.
