    Just wondering how the log files work?

    I am trying to pull live stats for my site but the log files in the virtual dirs are a day old. Is there any way to pull live stats?

    There is one combined stats file in /var/log/httpd/ that is splitted by ISPConfig every night. This approach is much more scalable then havind a access logfile for every website. If you have more then 100 or 15o sites, the approch with a own access file per website, which is nescessary for live statistics, will fail.

    If your server has just a few sites, you can add a log directive for your own access logfile in the apache directives field of every website and use this logfile to generate the live statistics.
