I have an OSQA application on Webfaction: http://turkukraynaforum.com/
Recently, some web page produces 500 server error. But looking at the user/error_ostuf.log file, I cannot see any logs related to the error.
How can I find out what happens on that web page?
UPDATE: I solved the 500 server error problem. But I still would like to know why the logs were not inside the log files.
Django logs are by default stored at the /hom/<username>/logs/user/error_<app>.log. You can see where your application stores them in your httpd.conf file in the /home/<username>/webapps/<app>/apache2/conf directory, just check for the ErrorLog directive.
I've tried loading your page some times but couldn't see any 500 http error, neither something logged at the log files.
If it does thrown a 500 error but is not written in the logs, you could try one of the wsgi debugging techniques to further diagnose any issues.
