How to find the log files?

  • Apache Server error log is a file which stores the information when user encounters any errors while working.
  • For example, a user requesting a file which does not exist.
  • The server error log file is set by the directive, ErrorLog where the Appache http directive will be sending the information record that occurs while processing any requests.
  • In windows the errol log is stored under error.log file.
  • Example of error log is as shown below
  • [Wed Jan 18 14:32:52 2019] [error] [client] user denied by server configuration: /export/home/track/aps/htdocs/test.


Most of the error message contains the date and time when the error occurred, client or user IP address etc.
