what logs do I check?
I'm running rh8-- it has an ftp server directly linked up into apache's /html directory. I think something happened when too many people logged onto it(I still have to ask some of the people what exactly happened). The "server" crashed and gave me a funky error when I tried to startX. That had to deal with x already running on a different virtual terminal though.
What I'm wondering is a more general question. What logs do I check if something happens? Is there a master system .log file.
