I am on shared hosting and have Cpanel, Apache, PHP is run by fastcgi. Where does PHP store the error log?
Is there any other way I can find the error log on shared hosting environment instead of having to go through entire site structure to look for error_log files?
I have access to the
php.ini (I am using PHP version 5.2.16).
PHP stores error logs in
/var/log/apache2 if PHP is an apache2 module.
Shared hosts are often storing log files in your root directory
But…if you have access to a
php.ini file you can do this:
error_log = /var/log/php-scripts.log
According to rinogo‘s comment: If you’re using cPanel, the master log file you’re probably looking for is stored (by default) at
If all else fails you can check the location of the log file using
<?php phpinfo(); ?>
