Logs on Linux Server

Follow These Steps to View Logs on Linux Server

First you need to connect to your Linux VPS using your favorite SSH client. Then you need to go to /var/log directory by using cd command.


To see all the files on the directory, use dir command. After doing so, you will see your Linux Server logs shown.


You can also use your favorite text editor to view the logs. For example, use vi command. Notice that vi is a text editor and it is also suitable for reading but we suggest using “less”, “more”, “cat”, “tail” for reading logs.


When you’re done viewing and want to stop it – type :q command and press Enter.
