500 error log

  • Answered
I'm getting 500 errors on certain files only when called by AJAX from a SWF file. The module in question is jQuery Uploadify, a common file uploader module that POSTs the data to a designated PHP file. When I open the PHP file directly through browser it's fine, but not when called via the SWF module. I need to see the error to troubleshoot this.

Where can I find the error logs for the 500? It's not a PHP level error it seems, as my PHP error logs do not contain the timestamp nor my IP address.
Hello jeffkee, Thank you for your question. First, here is our basic guide on troubleshooting 500 errors. 500 errors are stored in the Apache error logs,since you have root access you can check the logs here via SSH: /usr/local/apache/logs/error_log Also, here is a detailed article that lists the path to the cPanel logs.
