    Hello everyone, I have been trying to figure out where in WHM/Cpanel I can find the server error logs to trouble shoot an email problem that I am having (my emails are not making it to GoDaddy account emails and no errors are sent back to me or anything).

    This may be a very basic question, but I am new to managing my server. I don't use shell that much either, so I am not sure if this is something I can just check on WHM. Please advice, thank you

    Regards

    cPanel actually came out with a great poster with log file locations some time ago. If you'd like to get your hands on one, have a peek here:
    cPanel's 2009 Log Location Poster. Available Now! - cPanel Inc.

    I like this WHM addon, LogView:
    www.logview.org

    Easy to install, easy to get to many logfiles via your browser. You'll note in the image at that link, the first 4 logfiles shown are for mail. ;)

    Infopro, thanks I ordered the posters already, nice thanks for the tip.

    I was able to download and install the script but I can't find it in my WHM, I am looking under cPanel - Addon Scripts (Deprecated) but it's not there, can you help me please?

    Thank you

    Sure, bottom of your WHM menu, in the Plugins section.

    System Log Viewer - LogView
