Server Logs

The pid.log File

The pid.log file is only created on UNIX platforms and is located in the {platform}/bin directory. The pid.log keeps a record of the process id's for the DynaWeb Internet Servers running on that machine. Normally, there are at least two entries in the pid.log file, which is created when the server is started and erased when the server is shut down. The two entries are the server-controller and the port-specific process for the port where the server is listening. This port-specific process is referenced in the pid.log by the name "httpd-{xxxx} {pid}" where {xxxx} is the port number of the server and {pid} is the process id of the process.

The main.log File

The main.log file acts as the log file for the server-controller process. Any error output generated by the server-controller is stored in the main.log. By default, the main.log file is kept in the logs directory beneath the main server directory.

The Access Log

The access log logs all of the requests for information received by the server in a common log file format recognized by most log parsers. The access log is located in the logs directory beneath the main server directory.

The Error Log

The error log keeps a record of all of the error messages and informational messages generated by the server.
