Postgres 8.3 on Ubuntu. Where are the server logs?

I'm sure there must be a standard place it puts them.

Did you have a look in the /var/log directory? I assume the logs are placed in /var/log/postgresql. But you can also check the PostgreSQL configuration files for the logfile settings.


If you enable logging from /etc/postgresql/13/main/postgresql.conf then you'll able to see logs on this directory /var/log/postgresql.


Somewhere in /var/log would be my guess. That's the standard place for logs in Debian, which Ubuntu is derived from.
