Then start your browser and do the operation that creates the error condition, make sure the error happens, and immediately after that save a copy of the logs.

Then, zip the folder containing the log files, and attach to your case submission form or next email response.

The Apache logs are in /www/zendsvr6/logs for Zend Server versions 6-8.5, or in /www/zendphp7/logs for version 9. The Apache logs contain the date as part of the file name. Please find the most recent logs. As an example, if the logs are for 04/25/2013, the files will be:
