PHP module for create XML and LOG files

Getting Started

Add package to composer.json

composer require zguillez/php-xmlog

    "require": {
        "zguillez/php-xmlog": "^1.1.3"


require 'vendor/autoload.php';

use Z\Log;

$params["filename"] = "register";
$params["path"] = "./logs/";

$log = new Log($params);

On this example, "register" is the name of the log file and "./logs" is the folder on this files will be saved. This folder must exits and have write permitions.

$log->insert('This is an update!');

This will create a file "register.log" with the text "This is an update!".

For create a XML file instead LOG file:

$params["type"] = Log::XML;

Options (true/false):

1 dated:

$params["dated"]  = true;

Create a dated file name:

  • true: register_2016-03-12_17:10:17.log
  • false (default): register.log

2 clear:

$params["clear"]  = true;

Overwrite last file:

  • true: register.log (overwrite the file with new log text)
  • false (default): register.log (new log text will added in new line)

3 backup:

$params["backup"] = true;

Backup last file:

  • true: register_2016-03-12_17:10:17_backup.log
  • false (default): (no backup file)


You can override the log options by a config function.



require 'vendor/autoload.php';

$params["type"]   = Log::LOG;
$params["filename"]   = "register";
$params["path"]   = "./logs/";
$params["dated"]  = false;
$params["clear"]  = false;
$params["backup"] = false;

$log = new Log($params);


$log->insert('This is update one!');
$log->insert('This is update two!');
