Can someone tell how to review the IIS log? I'm having issues with a checkout and need to dig into errors to see what is going now.

The HTTP Log feature in IIS writes a CSV formatted text file that contains the various fields that are enabled in the feature configuration.

The best way to analyze http logs is to use one of the following tools:

1. Log Parser (knowledge level is intermediate+)  https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/scriptcenter/dd919274.aspx
2. WebLog Expert Lite (knowledge level is novice)  http://www.weblogexpert.com/lite.htm
3. Webalizer (knowledge level is novice)   http://www.webalizer.org/

The most flexible tool is Log Parser which work on mulitple log formats and give you the ability to do SQL-like queries on your log files.

Also important, would be to go thru your Application Event Logs and look for warnings and errors that relate to your website/app.
