    Are you logged in as the user root ?

    Can you login using Putty/command line using SSH into the server and post the output of the following command ?

    ls -ald /etc/httpd/logs
    ls -ald /var/log/

    I think you are login as username which doesn't have privellges, so login as root and run following command at shell prompt.

    tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
    Apache error logs directory on cpanel: /usr/local/apache/logs/

    other important logs files can be found in /var/log directory

    As others have said it looks like a permission issue. Try to open the file through SSH and make sure you have su (root) permissions to eliminate any possibility that your current account is restricted.
