    Most folks look at these logs by logging into their server via SSH and using a text editor like nano to open and view the files.

    There are other utilities such as tail, cat, more, less, head etc. that are useful for viewing logs. You can do an internet search to see how to use those utilities.

    Alternatively, you can install a plugin to WHM like LogView which lets you view these logs via WHM.
