# How to Debug Beekeeper Studio

# Enable Debug Mode and Collect Logs

You can find logs for Beekeeper in these directories:

Linux: ~/.config/beekeeper-studio/logs/{process type}.log MacOS: ~/Library/Logs/beekeeper-studio/{process type}.log Windows: %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\beekeeper-studio\logs{process type}.log

By default they will only contain uncaught errors.

You can enable extended logging by starting Beekeeper Studio with the debug flag DEBUG=*.

On linux, just run the app like this: DEBUG=* beekeeper-studio

# SQLite

# I get 'permission denied' when trying to access a database on an external drive

If you're on Linux and using the snap version of Beekeeper you need to give the app an extra permission.

sudo snap connect beekeeper-studio:removable-media :removable-media

If you're on another platform, please open a ticket and we'll try to help you debug the problem.
