Is your feature request related to a problem? Please describe.
Sort of. Is has become apparent on the support forum that a lot of users have NC running on a VPS without any root or shell access. So helping the community debug their issues one is sometimes left with a lot of frustration because they cannot get to the logs to paste the whole log, and turn around time on issues takes a lot of time.

Describe the solution you'd like
In some other web-based services like Plex, one is able to download a complete set of log files. So you could bump the loglevel, download your log file as a text file, and then reset the log level, and paste the logs to the forum.

I don't know if this is possible yet, could not find the option on any of my instances, so if it is there I may be going blind, or maybe the download option needs to be more prominent?
Could not find an issue similar to this FR in the docs yet, but apologies if I missed it?

You should have a look on Settings->Administration->Logging. If you click on the breadcrumb menu you will find a button to download the log file:

You are right. I COMPLETELY missed that. Less beer, more focus. Thanks!
