    If so, then you've surely wished that someone would collate the locations of all the logs on a cPanel server and lay them out in some easy-to-read format. Graphically, say? And you don't want to be bossy, but maybe they could add attractive orange and blue accents, and some grayed-out text as a background?

    Wish no more! cPanel's 2009 Log Location Reference is here. It shows the default location of every log file created by cPanel or a cPanel-related service, in an easy-to-read 36" x 48" poster.

    Order as many as your technical support team's collective hearts may desire. Their troubleshooting skills, and your customers, will thank you.

    Hi there people. I like the idea of having a FREE cheat sheet, but I live outside USA and that's why I'm requesting even a printable PDF copy of the posters. If you can send it printed inside USA for free, I don't see a reason you cannot send the posters by email or publish them to be happily downloaded. Could you, please? Formats publicly polite to use: pdf, jpg, bmp, ai, psd.
    Thank you!

    Anyone outside US could appreciate a vectored or higher resolution & cleaner picture for printing in A3 or A2 paper :)

    +1 for this. This is also a feature request per se! This thread should be moved or copied to that forum.

    I am in the US and I would still like to see a way to download these, considering that the online order form does not seem to work (Chrome, Firefox and IE)

    So chose France (like my own ^^) click next and you will get those.

    This apart, all that sounds to me like kind of "cPanel easter egg"

    So the question remains unanswered without a poster?

    I hate that, for me it is located at: /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log

    I often use
    Code:
    tail -500 /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
    to give me the last 500 lines of the Apache Error Log.


    Also try:
    Code:
    # Update DB
    Then

    Code:
    # Locate Error Log

    So the question I answered here is:

    Where is the Apache Log Located on a CENTOS 6.3 x86_64 running WHM 11.35.0 (build 3) ?

    For those who find this post and don't want to order a poster. :rolleyes:

    /usr/local/apache/logs/ is the standard location of Apache logs on an Apache build from source. This is not unique to cPanel.

    I know CentOS's RPM installation of httpd uses /etc/httpd, but /usr/local/apache is actually the default if you build from source.

    cPanel does break out domain-specific access logs into /usr/local/apache/domlogs, but the main access and error log are in their standard locations.

    Just as a note, the commands should be:

    Code:
    # updatedb
    # locate error_log
    Linux is case-sensitive, so the examples you gave with capital letters would not work. Also, not all servers have the locate database or the locate command installed, and without running updatedb first, the locate database may not be up to date (though many run it daily using cron). find is much slower, since it must actually search the filesystem, but more definitive.

    Hi,

    I have an updated logs reference poster from cPanel but I didnt found any new version of "Configuration Flow Chart" poster.

    I have only a old version... 2012 i think.

    Have someone this?

    Thanks
    Best regards

    A couple years ago we got some handy log/conf location posters shipped to our workplace via http://cpanel.com/posters. Now it 404's. Are you guys still doing the posters for 2015? Or are the PDF's still available somewhere?

    Would love to have them for my son who is becoming more interested in what I do at work, learning to code, and of course, running WHM + Linux like a boss. Thanks!

    The posters program was ended back in April of this year. That's not to say its not coming back, but those posters that were previously offered, are no longer available.

    I would also like to get that posters back again.
    Is it possible to get access to old posters anyway?

    It's not. Please accept our apologies about this.


    There is no new news about new posters yet either, right now. But, you can be sure that when there is, we'll let you know.

    Thanks for your interest!
