Initially, the default.  I went to the site URL today and, lo and behold it 
was there.  Phew!  Not.  I go in and add to and edit $wgLogo in 
LocalSettings.php to point to my custom PNG.  I can see the PNG when I 
point the browser to it, but not when I view the page.  I did have the path 
wrong at first, but Apache's error log clued me in.

Now I've got it set to

$wgLogo = "{$wgStylePath}/{$wgScriptPath}images/mylogo.png";

.. which, I thought translated to


Maybe not?  It's blank on the wiki page - no broken icon.  Is there another 
log I should look at?
