The error log should be written automatically. Do you have a webserver installed? If you do, you can find the error log’s path by running the following command:

sudo grep -ri ErrorLog /etc/httpd
sudo grep -ri ErrorLog /etc/apache2
sudo grep -ri error_log /etc/nginx

The output should show you all of the occurrences of the word error.
