The only error log I am currently able to access is posted in the first post. The "SoftException in Application.cpp:630" is the one that is relevant to the forums.
The error log entries being shown are "the web server error log", as opposed to any PHP error log entries. The PHP error log entries actually could have been configured to have been written as part of the web server error log; but that's apparently not the case on your server, if this is all that's in the web server error log. The PHP error log can also simply be written to its own stand-alone file, or can be configured to be written to the OS system log.
If you can access the phpBB ACP General well enough to invoke the "PHP Information" link, the "error_log" directive displayed there might confirm how logging is configured for PHP on your server. Or, you might just need to ask your hosting provider where the PHP error log entries are supposed to be accessible to you, if not in your hosting control panel.
Whether there was an intentional change or not, or some other condition outside of your control or not, the PHP error log is still the most definitive clue for "what exactly is failing."
