Thanks everybody, but I still can't find the server log(s)!
I've looked at /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and it says the following
about location of the error log:
# ErrorLog: The location of the error log file.
# If you do not specify an ErrorLog directive within a <VirtualHost>
# container, error messages relating to that virtual host will be
# logged here.  If you *do* define an error logfile for a <VirtualHost>
# container, that host's errors will be logged there and not here.
ErrorLog logs/error_log

But when I look for files with the name error_log I don't see anything
which looks like a (plain text) server error log file - and there is no
such file in the /etc/httpd/logs directory. Where am I going wrong
