This lesson explained how to log specific information about the requests and errors generated by Apache. You can store the logs in files or databases, or pass them to external programs. You learned about the different utilities available for managing, processing, and analyzing logs, both the ones included with Apache and those available from third parties.
Finally, you saw a simple method for using PHP code snippets and a MySQL database to perform simple access tracking of specific pages. This information was then displayed in a simple access report, built with PHP.
