Sorry for the newb question, I just got a VPS and I've installed Python and moved my site over. Everything works, but when I try to run scripts (in /cgi-bin/ ) I get 500 Internal Server Error. Where can I locate the error log for this?

My info is: Apache/2.0.63 (Unix) mod_ssl/2.0.63 OpenSSL/0.9.8e-fips-rhel5 mod_auth_passthrough/2.1 mod_bwlimited/1.4 FrontPage/ Server at

Thanks in advance!

What distribution? Are you using mod_wsgi (with a framework like django?) or running python scripts as a CGI, etc? – DerfK Oct 27 '10 at 22:55
