Log Files

There are two types of Web Server log files: the errors log file and the access log file. The errors log file lists all the errors a server has encountered. The access log records information about requests to the server and the responses from the server. For more information, refer to the Sun Java System Web Server 7.0 Administrator’s Guide

These logs are located in the following directories: 

  • Solaris OS: /var/opt/SUNWwbsvr7/https-instancename/logs

  • Linux and HP-UX: /var/opt/sun/webserver7/https-instancename/logs

If Web Server configuration fails during Configure Now installation, refer to the following logs for additional information:
