Where Does PHP Store The Error Log? (php 5, Apache, FastCGI, And Cpanel)

By default, PHP error logs are typically stored in different locations based on the hosting environment and configuration.

For Apache server on cPanel, PHP error logs can be found in the following locations:

  1. Apache global error log: /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
  2. Virtual host-specific error log: /home/username/logs/domain.com.error.log (replace "username" with your cPanel username and "domain.com" with your domain name)

For FastCGI, the PHP error logs are usually stored in the following locations:

  1. Apache global error log: /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log
  2. FastCGI error log: /var/log/apache2/php.XXX.log (replace "XXX" with the version of PHP, for example, php.71.log)

Keep in mind that these paths may vary depending on the specific server configuration. It’s recommended to consult your hosting provider or server administrator if you are unsure about the exact location of the PHP error logs.
