These instructions require access through SSH. Please see this article for assistance in connecting via SSH:

mail log
: Change the LogLevel value in /etc/mail/ and then run:
     m4 /etc/mail/ > /etc/

POP mail server log:

  • edit the /etc/.qpopperoptions,
  • uncomment the first line, and change “set log-facility=local7” to “set log-facility=mail” and it will log to the mail log.
  • If you want it somewhere else, instead of “mail” set the log-facility to “local0” and it will log to /var/log/messages

Procmail log: edit /etc/procmailrc, change LOGABSTRACT to “yes”, then add the line “LOGFILE = “/var/log/proc”

MySQL log: edit the /etc/my.cnf, add the line “log = /var/log/mysql.log”, then restart MySQL

MySQL slow query log:

  • edit /etc/my.conf, add the following lines:
  • log-slow-queries = /var/log/mysql-slow-query.log
  • log-long-format
  • long_query_time = 3
  • log-queries-not-using-indexes


  • edit /etc/php.ini,
  • change log_errors to On,
  • then uncomment the line “error_log” and set the path you want to log to, /var/log/php_errors is a good one to use.
