Depending on your distro , you will need to locate the syslog file. This file is normally found under /etc/syslog.conf

open this file and uncomment the line starting with cron.*

Restart syslog and cron

/etc/init.d/syslog or sysklogd restart

/etc/init.d/crond restart

The logs are normally stored under /var/log/cron
