Where are the Apache Error and Access Logs Located?

Last updated on

To view the Apache error log and access log files, we can use tail to display the last 200 entries.

sudo tail /var/log/apache2/error.log -n 200
sudo tail /var/log/apache2/access.log -n 200

To output appended data as the logs grows, use -f.

sudo tail /var/log/apache2/error.log -f
sudo tail /var/log/apache2/access.log -f
