I usually find any files using
file command and filter the results using
grep. It helps on many situation. For your case it is possible that your
tomcat6 log file would be located in some other place.
So you can use following command to locate it, you would get few results then it would be easier to look the actual path:
sudo find / -type f | grep tomcat| grep log
For example if I want to find all the
log files of
apache2 then I have to execute this (I don't have tomcat installed, so giving apache2 example):
sudo find / -type f | grep apache2 | grep log
I got this:
Now it is easier to locate all log of apache2 like
access etc.. You can use more filter to cascade some more results..
Hope you would be able to locate your
tomcat6 log file..
