Where to find log file

My Fedora Core 5 web server fell last night, I was wondering which is the file where I could look at the log and see what went on. I have been trying to configure the X server in order to connect a flat panel monitor, and I'm thinking that maybe I ran a command that I shouldn't have which caused the server to reset. Some of the commands that I recall running from the terminal window using ssh from a Windows computer are init 3, init 5, telinit 5, startx. Anyways, my biggest issue right now is finding this file and double check it so the server won't shut down again, or have services reset, etc. Thanks!

Hi


Current system logs can be located at /var/log/messages

Archived logs can found at /var/log/messages.X (where X is  number 1 to 9)

Apache logs are located at /var/log/httpd/

X server logs are at /var/log/Xorg.0.log


Trev.
