The usual log reporting option "Recent log messages" is not showing up under 'admin/reports' (in the admin menu).

Any idea what might be causing that? Is there a module that provides this functionality?

  • check View site reports under permissions

  • I am logged in as admin, so should be able to see it. In permissions it is showing but not checked for anon user or authenticated user. Commented Apr 30, 2013 at 16:25

    also check if the Database Logging module in Core - Optional is enabled.

The "Recent log messages" is one of the submenu options located within admin/reports/dblog.

It becomes available after the core module dblog (Database Logging) is enabled.

If that core module is enabled, and it still isn't showing up, then it is probably because permission "View site reports" (within "System") has not been granted to the user trying to access that report.

  • For future visitors still using drupal 7: Disabling and enabling the dblog module for some reason might also fix it. Commented Feb 21, 2022 at 15:50
