cPanel uses a graphical interface to make web hosting super easy, but there are command line tools you could familiarize yourself with for advanced troubleshooting. cPanel logs most activity that happens on a server to log files so you can go back and review log entries for problems, instead of having to be on the server at the time of them happening.

In this guide we will see the locations of the cPanel log files for things such as access logs, Apache web server logs, email logs, error logs, ftp logs, MySQL logs, and WHM logs.
