Getting Apache logs
You can find all your Apache logs (like
error.log) on all of our shell servers in the directory
/var/log/apache_user/username. For more information on how to access your files, please visit Accessing your files.
Using Cyberduck (graphical interface)
You can access the log files using an SFTP client like Cyberduck. After logging in to one of our shell servers as per Accessing your files, click on "Go" on the top bar and then click "Go to Folder...":
/var/log/apache_user/username as path name (replace username with your own username):
After pressing "Go", you will see a directory for each of your websites, containing their Apache logs.
You can view a log file by selecting it and pressing the "Edit" button.
After a few days, logs will be compressed into a
bz2 file. You can download such a file and open it with 7-Zip.
Using the command line
You can also access your logs by logging in to one of our shell servers over SSH and navigating to the correct directory:
username@ssh1:~$ cd /var/log/apache_user/username username@ssh1:/var/log/apache_user/username$ ls username.ulyssis.be username@ssh1:/var/log/apache_user/username$ cd username.ulyssis.be username@ssh1:/var/log/apache_user/username/username.ulyssis.be$ ls access-2014-05-07.log error-2014-05-07.log username@ssh1:/var/log/apache_user/username/username.ulyssis.be$ tail error-2014-05-07.log [Wed May 07 01:27:14 2014] [error] [client 10.0.0.1] File does not exist: /home/user/username/www/favicon.ico
If you can't find your username inside of
/var/log/apache_user, don't worry. If you enter it with
cd username, it will automatically appear.
