How do I save laravel.log to Amazon AWS S3?

Published 8 months ago by hellomars

Dear users,

I would like to save my laravel.log to S3. I have created a bucket on S3 and able to read and save a sample text file on S3 using Tinker.

I've changed the local storage line in config\filesystems.php from:

'default' => env('FILESYSTEM_DRIVER', 'local'),


 'default' => env('FILESYSTEM_CLOUD', 's3'),

But I still get a new log file in the local storage folder.... Who knows how to get this into S3?

Hi Dry7, interesting. So instead of having it saved directly, it saves it every hour. This way, I could also modify the output name. I think this feature is worthwhile investigating. I'll wait for a couple of days and if no other (maybe better?) option is available, I'll mark your answer as the best!


@hellomars I think you’re better off writing logs to CloudWatch, which is an AWS service intended for logging, unlike S3.


Martinbean, that is an excellent suggestion as well, I will definitely look into that!
