    Where are error logs on MAC
    I need to find where the error logs are stored on a MAC Server. I can't use console because I have no GUI access on the server just SSH (terminal). What log file am i looking for

    Specs:
    15" MBP, Core i7/2GHz, 8GB RAM, 480GB Crucial M500 SSD
    It depends on which one you're looking for. If it's system, that would be here:

    /private/var/log/system.log

    Other logs:

    ~/Library/Logs (user-specific)
    /Library/Logs
    /var/log


    Oh, and it's Mac, which is short for Macintosh. MAC stands for "Media Access Control", which is a sub-layer of the OSI model.
