I have upgraded Sitecore 8.1 to 9.1 and have different servers for each environment , but the CD server is not generating logs in the data folder , I have given the path of the data folder in the DataFolder.Config file and Sitecore.Config file also, still not able to see the logs there, Please help.

  • needs some more details. could you please share DataFolder.Config file as a screenshot? It could be a misspelling issue as an example. Commented Jun 4, 2019 at 12:56

  • Double check the file system permissions. I ran into an the issue once because the account that the app pool was running under didn't have permissions.

In Sitecore 9 default location of logs was changed. Instead of having data folder on same level as website folder, logs were moved under website folder.

You can check App_Data\logs folder inside your website, logs should be there if you have default logs configuration.
