I have an account with a hosting company but am wondering if you can find out your path to your access-log with telnet somehow?
I have a weblog program that I want to use which I have used before on other servers & it asked for the name to my access-log.
On the other servers I used to give it the path to a dir called "access-log"; in FTP the icon for that dir was a normal folder icon with another small image on top of the folder. What's that mean?
On this server I can't seem to find one, all I can locate is a logs folder containg a subfolder with several .gz files with all my info in them. (referers, errors etc).
Btw, they use Apache.
I found this info while reading some info for a logging program & was wondering does this have anything to do with it?
* Configure your apache web server to have NCSA combined/XLF/ELF log format (you can use your own log format but this predefined logformat is often the best choice and made setup easier). You can do this by changing, in httpd.conf, following directives (See your apache manual for more information):
CustomLog /yourlogpath/yourlogfile common
CustomLog /yourlogpath/yourlogfile combined
To be sure the log format change is effective, you can stop Apache, remove all old log files, restart Apache and go to your homepage. This is an example of records you should get then in the new log file:
188.8.131.52 - - [dd/mmm/yyyy:hh:mms +0000] "GET / HTTP/1.1" 200 1234 "http://www.from.com/from.html" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.01; Windows NT 5.0)"
