This module logs your conversations to some special place on your disk.

Depending on how the log module is loaded, the logs are stored:

 global:  ~/.znc/moddate/log/$user_$network_$channel_YYYYMMDD.log
 user:    ~/.znc/users/$user/moddata/log/$network_$channel_YYYYMMDD.log
 network: ~/.znc/users/$user/networks/$network/moddata/log/$channel_YYYYMMDD.log

(Replace ~/.znc/ with your data dir if you use a non-standard one).

You can make a symlink for easier access to that location, e.g.

ln -s $HOME/.znc/users/dude/moddata/log/ $HOME/dude_irc_logs


In the znc-0.206 release this module is NOT a core module, see ZNC-Extra for more information on how to use it



This user module takes up to one argument. Path where to store logs. It can contain $USER, $NETWORK and $WINDOW substitutes.

Read loading modules to learn more about loading modules. Load the module to start logging, unload it to stop logging. Kinda easy, eh?


This module does not support any commands.


The log module uses the "energymech" format so it can be used with pisg if so desired.

Example Config

       Logfile = "/home/znc/.znc/users/efnet/moddata/log/#znc_*.log"
       Format = "energymech"
       Network = "EFnet"
       OutputFile = "znc.html"
