How to create a Debug Log- The Basic/Easy Way

This is the easy/basic method primarily used when KODI is functional or functional enough to follow the below steps before experiencing any crashing.

  1. Enable Debugging mode.
    a. Go to Settings>System Settings>Logging and it should be the first option or
    b. press ctrl-shift-d on a keyboard
  2. Restart Kodi. Do not skip this step or you may be asked to do it again.
  3. Replicate the problem. Now that debug mode is enabled, repeat the steps that cause the problem.
  4. Upload the log using either the:
    a. Manual method to Kodi Paste Site. Log location is detailed here... Log_file/Advanced#Location (wiki) (see next section for more details), or
    b. Add-on method using the Kodi Logfile Uploader. (wiki) See note in the next post.
    With either method post the address link into a new post in your thread.

Note: If you logs are rejected for being too large then use...
Note: Be aware of the difference between Kodi.log and Kodi.old.log. See the next post.

If you are Uploading using method 4a, the following are further instructions on locating your log file and how to upload it to a pastebin site...

The log file is named kodi.log. Its location varies depending upon your operating system. Find the correct location here... Log_file/Advanced#Location (wiki). You must locate this log file and copy it's contents to a public pastebin type site as follows:
  1. Exit\Shutdown Kodi
  2. Navigate to the log file folder described above and locate the file named kodi.log
  3. Open the file with Notepad and copy all the contents of the document
  4. Go to the Kodi Paste Site
  5. Paste the contents of the kodi.log file
  6. Press the floppy disk icon in the top right corner to save the paste and wait.
  7. When the screen refreshes with your paste, copy the entire address in the address bar and paste it into a new message in your thread

Note: Full logs only. No partial or redacted logs
