Apache Logs

Postby george.abraham1912 » 25. February 2013 13:55


I am running Moodle on Xampp with Apache server. I would like to access the Apache log files for retrieving some details pertaining to activities like timestamp for visiting certain pages in Moodle. I am told that these details are not logged in the Moodle databases but are surely recorded in the Apache log files.

What I would like to know is how can I access the Apache log files? Are they available through phpmyadmin or through some other means? And any idea which all tables I should be accessing?

Ahhh - they are in \xampp\apache\logs - :idea:

They are CSV 'type' text files in which you can set/configure the delimiters.

There are reporting tools that work with them including 'webalizer' (for the access.log & included with XAMPP).


Good Luck

Hi george.abraham1912,

Another way to access the Apache logfiles:
XAMPP control panel => [Logs] Button => Apache (access.log) / Apache (error.log)

best wishes,
