Types of Log

The log type can be broadly classified as:

  1. Access Log — The access log records information about requests to and responses from the server.

  2. Server Log — The Server Log lists all the errors the server has encountered since the log file was created. It also contains informational messages about the server, such as when the server was started and who tried unsuccessfully to log in to the server.
