On servers provisioned with Sail, important server logs are written to the system journal via syslog. They can be access using a few convenient shortcuts available in the Sail CLI:

sail logs
sail logs --nginx
sail logs --php
sail logs --postfix

You cad add --follow or -f to tail-follow these logs, which is really useful when debugging.

Other server logs can be found in the /var/log directory, which can be accessed using an SSH shell with Sail.
