Seemingly no matter what options I choose on the Volunteer Report it throws the error "DB Error: unknown error" and I don't see anything in the Apache error logs.

What's the best way to troubleshoot this and see the actual error? Thanks.

You are looking in the wrong place.

Check your PHP logs on your webserver.

Check the civicrm logs in /civicrm/ConfigAndLog or wherever you have configured that folder.

  • Thank you! I'm a Python person by trade so wasn't sure where the logs would show up. I do see the full error now so I'll ask it as a separate question in case other people have seen this same error as opposed to turning this into something other than how it started. Appreciate the tip! Oct 9, 2018 at 20:05
