I have an old log file generator on my Apache server.

How do I install (find) a newer one, with for instance referer data included in the log file?

Hi,

   By default, the logs file are in the logs directory under the root Web directory. For instance, i intall my web Server under
/usr/local/httpd, so my logs directory would be /usr/local/httpd/logs. Under that directory, access_log & error_log are what you're looking for. You don't need to install,
by default it will write all logs to that file.

Regards,
Minh Lai

Well.. I do know about the items in the respond.

In fact when I set ut the virtual mails servers, i specify, where the log files are to be stored and what they are to be named. But the problem is that in these log files, certain information (referals for instance) is not included.
