Error Log

We have disabled the error log function in cPanel because it contains a quirk that causes it not to record errors from applications such as Django.

To remedy this, we've reconfigured the web server to log errors to a file called:

tmp/error.log

In each user's home directory. This makes cPanel's error log viewer useless because it doesn't know to look at that file for errors, but since the error log can be viewed/downloaded in SSH and FTP we feel this trade-off is worth it so that customers can actually see all of their errors.
