4.3. Dashboard log files

The dashboard is served to users through the Apache web server (httpd).
As a result, dashboard-related logs appear in files in the /var/log/httpd directory on the system where the dashboard is hosted.
Log file names are based on the installer used and how the log files are named is defined in /etc/httpd/conf.d/ file, which is the Dashboard httpd configuration file, which is again dependent on installer.
The following table describes these files:
