As the title states. Where are the crontab errors logged and what is the name of the file? I’m not sure what the name of the file is so I have no clue what to search on with find -iname "file name here"..

By default on Ubuntu your cron output should be logged to /var/log/syslog If you would like cron to log to it’s own file you can edit /etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf and uncomment the line


Then run

sudo service rsyslog restart

and your cron jobs will be logged to /var/log/cron.log
