Subject Interpreting Log Information: where can I find directions?
Date Wed, 30 Jan 2002 15:08:46 GMT
Where can I find directions on how to interpret an apache log? I'm reading 
along, seeming to understand, and then I come across something which makes 
no sense to me.

Here's an example: - - [29/Jan/2002:22:39:48 -0800] "GET 
HTTP/1.1" 200 8929 "-" "Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows 95)"

What I understand:
   IP of requester (Cached whois for

- -
   (don't remember, but do know I'm not likely to see anything here most of 
the time)

29/Jan/2002:22:39:48 -0800
   when the request took place

   what was requested and which protocol version

   apache response code to request

   number of bytes sent to requester

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 4.01; Windows 95)
   requester's user agent

What I don't understand:

My server is How can a request for another site be 
made on mine? What does it mean when I see something of this nature?

Thank you for your assistance,
