As a server admin I want cPanel & WHM to log to the standard /var/log location so I don't need a flow chart to find log files.

A central logging location will greatly help for when a new log (e.g. "/usr/local/cpanel/logs/cpbackup_transporter.log") gets added.


One possible caveat:

An existing user script might expect logs in a specific location. Changing to "/var/log/cpanel" might break any such script.


Another caveat:

Should we allow the user to configure a new/old logging location facility? That means extra work for the Development group (and additional possibility of fault).


Suggested solution:

Long-term announcement of the change to provide users adequate time to make changes or weigh-in, as necessary.


(edited to remove ugly single line of code with log locations)

Its understandable why this is a major hassle, but standardized log locations would be great. But thank you for hard work into Cpanel regardless of how much we gotta dig :)

I generally have no idea where the logs are...

Please cPanel, do consider and implement this.

Thanks,
