    cPanel error logs?

    Does anyone know the exact path for cPanel error logs? My access logs are in /usr/local/apache/domlogs/ and a specific domain is giving me 500 errors, but I don't know exactly WHAT the error is.

    The only error_logs I can find on the server are:

    Code:
    /var/log/httpd/error_log
    /var/log/httpd/error_log.1
    /home/wrong-domain/public_html/error_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/error_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpdavd_error_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/lib/php/Log/error_log.php
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/lib/php/doc/Log/examples/error_log.php
    /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
    Any ideas? How do I get the right error_log for the domain I need?

    So if I'm getting a 500 error, if it's not showing up there, where in the world would it be?

    500 error should show up in /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    try the domlogs /usr/local/apache/domlogs/

    All I see are regular httpd_logs. Here's an example.

    Code:
    93.174.x.x - - [09/Dec/2009:17:23:02 -0500] "POST /contact/ HTTP/1.1" 500 5 "http://www.domain.com/contact/" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1)"
    Every line is returning a 500 error. I can't figure out what that error is since it's not being logged anywhere. The website doesn't work. What do I do now?

    Run the following command in the terminal and then access the site. Paste here what you see in the logs.

    Code:
     tail -f /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log | grep yourdomainname.com
    Replace 'yourdomainname.com' with the actual domain name.

    You can SSH to the server and can view these logs.

    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/*
    /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log
    /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    do you have mod_security or suphp installed? if yes, try check on the account's public_html and rename .htaccess to txt.htaccess, if the website works after you rename it then there are some errors on the .htaccess (most likely wrong URL Rewrite rules)

    Why not just login to cpanel and click the error log button ?
