Reading Apache Access Files - What is this?
I have been running apache for a few days now on a server - and I can't figure out what the Apache access_log file is capturing - below is a sample line.
I think it's 200 = OK, and 249 = size in bytes of requested document.
I don't know about the 249, but 200 is a the HTTP response code that Apache sent (which in this case means "OK", the file was found and returned.
It depends on how Apache is configured to write data to the log files. More info at: http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/logs.html#accesslog
If you are new to it all, you might want to work with the aid of a Server Log analyser
I like "Weblog Expert" and the Lite edition is great too.
