You indeed are on a Windows
client; please wrap text at 80
characters for those on text-only
MUA's.  ;-)

Most logs are in /var/log.  Some
configurations of Apache (you
are running Apache?) store logs
in other places --- you can check
your httpd.conf file to see where.

You have SSH access, I presume?
(Seems like you asked about
this recently.)

Log in via SSH, and open your files
in your editor of choice.  For example:

$ee /var/log/httpd-error.log

"ee" could be pico, nano, vi, vim,
