    hi guys,

    using ispconfig for a while now together with the perfect install for debian.
    as I have some strange problems accessing some pages of my site I tried having a look at my logfiles:

    h5810:/var/log/apache2# tail -f access.log

    but the last entry here is from yesterday... shouldn't I be able to see the log entries in realtime using this command? Or are the logs stored somewhere else??? seems very strange to me..

    apache log files

    some log files are here
    tail -F /home/www/webX/log/web.log

    where the X in webX is a number...

    yes but the logs should be there only after the nightly processing, I am talking about the "live logs"

    It depends on your distribution. You can check out /var/log/apache2.

    :) using Debian 3.1 but in my first post I said I checked:
    and there were no hits from that day, which struck me as very strange as I was used to see the newest changes there instantly, every time I accessed my sites..

    Then check /var/log/httpd.
