The get_debug_log() method retrieves the debug log file's absolute path and filename.

  • By default, LiveAPI environments log debugging data to the /home/user/.cpanel/LiveAPI.log.rand file, where user is the cPanel account's username, and rand is a random string that cPanel & WHM generates.


This method does not return the debug log's contents.
