This document will provide insight to where useful files are stored. These files may help with debugging or may be needed in order to configure the system.
Configuration Files (.conf & .yml)
Based on your system and setup, configuration files are normally found in the following locations. With faspex additional configuration can be done through the web interface.
- Enterprise Server: C:\Program Files\Aspera\Enterprise Server\etc\aspera.conf
- Point-to-Point: C:\Program Files\Aspera\Point-to-Point\etc\aspera.conf
- Faspex: C:\Program Files\Aspera\Faspex\config\faspex.yml
- Faspex: /opt/aspera/faspex/config/faspex.yml
- Others: /opt/aspera/etc/aspera.conf
- All: /Library/Aspera/etc/aspera.conf
Log files can help with debugging and getting the status of the application or service. If logging is not working (usually on a UNIX based OS) then you should check your /etc/syslog.conf or /etc/rsyslog.conf and ensure local2.* is being captured. To verify that it is being captured you should see a line specifying the location with that value (example: local2.* /var/log/aspera.log). If you cannot find your log file, you should check the knowledge base article here.
Additional information about the location of application-specific log files is available in this knowledge base article.
