Logging from Umbraco
Since Umbraco itself is written in ASP.NET, ELMAH works like a dream inside Umbraco. Besides logging uncaught errors, elmah.io also supports other types of messages like information and debug. In fact, all the log levels that you already know from log4net, NLog and Serilog, are supported on elmah.io as well. Logging in Umbraco CMS is based on log4net, which elmah.io also support. We have brought all these pieces together into a NuGet package that we call: Elmah.Io.Umbraco.
To start utilizing elmah.io from your Umbraco site, all you need to do is install the
Hit F5 and watch messages start flowing into elmah.io.

Clone your Umbraco Cloud project to a local folder as explained here: Visual Studio Setup.
- Commit and push all changes to the git respository. This will add elmah.io logging to your remote Umbraco Cloud project.
