If you’re new to running your own server, sometimes just finding things is the hardest thing to do. I spent a good 15 min trying to find mine, so here’s some info to help you.
Your system may vary. All my postings are from CentOS 5, running php 5.2.x, mysql 5.0.2x, and apache 2.2.x
You may need root-level access to see some of these as well.
I use pico. Some people like VI, some like VIM, some like NANO. I use pico. It’s just a text viewer.
View apache error_log
Send the text file to your website to make it viewable
cp /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log /home/SITEPATH/public_html
You can then view it in http://site.com/error_log. Firefox will open it up with out a download prompt.
