Sorry if this is a simple question.

I want to write the output of dvips to a file (i.e. something like a log file for dvips). I tried this but it gives an empty file:

dvips input.dvi > dvipslog.txt

My operating system is GNU/Linux CentOS 5.8.

The messages are sent by dvips to stderr. So try dvips input.dvi >& dvipslog.txt, which works for bash.

If you just want to get rid of the messages, use dvips -q.
