How to make log daily in CakePHP 3.x

As you may know according to the default configuration of CakePHP the debug and error log is generated in the same file. But this can be changed in a few simple steps. All you have to do is following.

  1. Got to config/app.php
  2. Find the ‘Log’ configuration array
  3. In both debug and error replace the ‘file’ with “’debug-‘ . date(‘Y-m-d’),” and “’error-‘ . date(‘Y-m-d’),” respectively
  4. Save the file and you are good to go.

Now, the log will be generated on a daily basis.
