Trouble downloading log

I am having some problems with a couple of things and need to be able to post my log. Having trouble with it and I was wondering if someone could walk me through it.

Normally the log would be in a /var/log/mythtv/ directory. However this depends on the setup and the specific package that you are using.

I was asking for additional logging at startup on another thread,
with a different set if instructions. Here's another way to increase
logging:

Code: Select all

echo 'ADDITIONAL_ARGS="--loglevel debug --logpath /tmp"' | sudo tee -a /etc/mythtv/additional.args
Then stop and start the backend using the systemctl commands mentioned
earlier:

Code: Select all

sudo systemctl stop mythtv-backend
sudo systemctl start mythtv-backend
(not using restart intentionally for others watching)

Do the tests and attach the log that will be in /tmp on the other thread please.

When finished, remove the file that creates the log file in /tmp

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/mythtv/additional.args
and stop and start the backend again.
