Postgres 8.3 on Ubuntu. Where are the server logs?

I'm sure there must be a standard place it puts them.

Did you have a look in the /var/log directory? I assume the logs are placed in /var/log/postgresql. But you can also check the PostgreSQL configuration files for the logfile settings.

Somewhere in /var/log would be my guess. That's the standard place for logs in Debian, which Ubuntu is derived from.
