This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



Adeptus is a lightweight plugin that allows you to send WordPress website logs to syslog, logstash, debug.log and error_log for you to collect, store, process and monitor your logs seamlessly.

With Adeptus you have the ability to
– Monitor all website and CMS activity in real time
– Audit stored logs information for security and debuggin purposes
– Visualize log data in 3rd party apps (Grafana, Kibana, etc..)
– Quickly generate reports in 3rd party apps

Adeptus is developed and maintained by The Digital Embassy, a Digital Agency in Adelaide South Australia.

Blazingly fast

Adeptus follows the philosphy of doing one thing really well, and that is collecting event data. How that data is stored and where it is sent is fully configurable. This makes Adeptus lightweight and very fast.

Extensive logging providers

Adeptus comes bundled with the ability to send logs to a number of providers, listed below. Need additional options? We follow the PSR-3 PHP standard so you can write your own provider or contact us for assistance.

  • Debug.log
  • Syslog (stored in /var/log or Windows event viewer)
  • Logstash
  • PHP error_log

You control it all — forever

Adeptus gives you complete control of your activity data. There’s no limit for how much data is stored, or for how long – this is entirely up to you!

Built with developers in mind

Extendable, adaptable, and open source — Adeptus was created with developers in mind. With its extendable architecture you can use a number of drivers to connect and monitor you application event data.

Minimum Requirements

  • PHP version 5.6.0 or greater (PHP 7.2 or greater is recommended)

Automatic installation

Automatic installation is the easiest option as WordPress handles the file transfers itself and you don’t need to leave your web browser. To do an automatic install of Adeptus, log in to your WordPress dashboard, navigate to the Plugins menu and click Add New.

In the search field type “Adeptus” and click Search Plugins. Once you’ve found our plugin you can view details about it such as the point release, rating and description. Most importantly of course, you can install it by simply clicking “Install Now”.

Manual installation

The manual installation method involves downloading our plugin and uploading it to your webserver via your favourite FTP application. The WordPress codex contains instructions on how to do this here.


Automatic updates should work like a charm; as always though, ensure you regularly backup your site just in case.

Configuring a provider

In order to store event logs you will need to configure a log provider. See our readme for more info.
