where can I find error logs for cron jobs I set up in my cpanel?

I have a script that runs in a browser, but as cron it never reaches the end and emails me OR makes my record in the DB of what happens. It just stops. I am assuming an error, but I look in the error log in my CPanel and see nothing.

Thanks
Scott

check the log file: /var/log/cron or possibly the /var/log/messages

Either that, or maybe it doesn't even start... try running the command via SSH & see what the output is.

Maybe the cron is running, but never stops? Might be worth checking the currently running processes to ensure you haven't got an infinite loop happening.
