Can't access pod logs

I am trying to access the logs of a pod in a kubernetes cluster but get a 404 on sending the following rest request:

GET api/namespaces/myNamespace/pods/myPod/log

  • docker cp not working
  • How do you define a network in a version 2 docker-compose definition file?
  • What process signal does pod receive when executing `kubectl rolling-update`?
  • How to Add Docker to Django + Gunicorn + Nginx + Fabric
  • Update docker container when new image is getting released
  • How to run Alfresco Bundled Installer on Docker?
  • When I try to see the status of the pod I get the following:

    Why can’t I get to the logs?

  • Lets encrypt failed authorization procedure - docker
  • Cannot connect to Docker daemon in Azure Container Service
  • Ubuntu docker container with upstart and syslog
  • redirect log files created in a docker container to stdout / stderr
  • Link docker-compose to local docker daemon
  • docker swarm stop containers on quorum loss
  • 3 Solutions collect form web for “Can't access pod logs”

    This works from me /api/v1/namespaces/myNamespace/pods/myPod/log

    Yours doesn’t have the api version.

    I found these;
    When the pod status changes to Running you can use the kubectl logs command to view the output.

    kubectl logs podname

    kubectl cluster-info
    How do I access the Kubernetes api from within a pod container?

    GET api/v1/namespaces/”podtest01734160-58f9-4042-8f38-3e55d7d5beb3″/pods/myPod/log

    there are two points need to be aware:
    1. in metadata it shows “namespace”: “podtest01734160-58f9-4042-8f38-3e55d7d5beb3” but it is not myNamespace,
    2. as the answer from iocanel, the api version is necessary, more info
    could be check here :

    Docker will be the best open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications.
