    Server crashes - where and what to look for

    I'm looking for advice on how the best way to go about checking the cause of a server crash after the server has been brought back up. I have a server that's gone down 4 times in the last 3 weeks and I'm not 100% sure what the cause is and don't want to start pointing a finger prematurely. Now, I'm not asking help for this, what I'm looking for is advice on where to look and what to look for after a server crashes.

    Thanks in advance!

    check logfiles, if the os is *nix compatible, they should be in /var/log, check /etc/syslog.conf for names and their content
