How to View the Error Logs in cPanel

This feature displays up to 300 of the most recent entries in Apaches error logs for your web pages, in reverse chronological order.

Error details

The interface includes entries in the
/usr/local/apache/logs/suexec_log file
/usr/local/apache/logs/error_log file

The interface displays error log entries from the user’s home directory. The interface also displays /usr/local/apache/logs/suexec_log file entries that include the username for the account.

The interface scans the most recent 2 MB in each log file. If the server is extremely busy, the portion of the log file that the interface scans may not contain any errors for this site.

Error Logs

To view older entries, access the individual log files.

The Apache log files record all the requests that Apache handles. Tasks that other services handle may have separate log locations.

Viewing Errors in the cPanel File Manager

You can see all the errors your website is generating using the cPanel File Manager interface.

1) Login to cPanel.

2) Click on the File Manager under Files.

3) Move to the /public_html folder, then select and open the "error_log file"
