Web Logging

When using Tomcat and Apache, where are the logs (and names) to look at to see access from clients to the web server, i.e. ip, suspicious info, etc.  Also, this is just for a pubic site and from the command line.

###tomcat logs are avail in :  /tomcat_installation_dir/logs.. there are two files catalina.out and catalina.err

in my case it is in /usr/local/tomcat6/logs/

###Apache logs default location is : /var/log/httpd/access.log and error.log ..

if you are not sure.. where exactly your logs files are then search them using find command

#find / -iname <log_file_name>
