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:


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.
