Server Logs via CLI?
At the terminal? Use text/console root login and tail /var/log/...
Over SSH? Login as a normal user, use 'su -', then tail /var/log/...Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
You can also download GNU log analysis software which will save you a lot of work. Some of this will work on almost any *nix platform. This is something which I've just started to look at myself, so I can't provide any links but the packages can:
- go through log files which you specify;
- be run as cron jobs while you're away doing something else;
- generate easy to read reports which can be automatically be emailed to you or piped into a text file etc.
Well worth the effort to learn if you want to avoid manually trawling through loads of /var/log directories.
