how to view http requests at the apache server end

Greetings,
I have a standalone php page that is being called by an application.
THe URL includes GET Variables.

Unfortunately I have to troubleshoot the php page, but the application is unable to tell me what the URL+variables was that was sent.

Is there a log or somethign I can turn on in Apache, that will let me see what the URLs requested are?

Thanks

You can change the LogLevel Directive to 'debug' in apache.conf to look at the URL being passed to Apache.

Post your Apache.conf if you are having issue.

This little PHP program will tell you everything that the server tells PHP about the server variables.  You can run it standalone then use what ever parts of it will help you.

THe URL includes GET Variables.
In PHP your script should say this:

var_dump($_GET);

...that will let you visualize the GET variables.  If you have some test data samples that show what the URL will look like, please post them and I will show you how to process them.  If you don't have any test data yet, please create some so we can move forward toward a good solution, thanks.
