View Your Web Servers Log Files With ASP
(Page 1 of 5 )

I know the pain of having a web server die unexpectedly, and letís face it... it happens even to the best of us. If you run a small web site and need to know when/if your web server is having any problems, then your best bet would be to read over the log file to see whatís gone wrong. But how do you read the log file when youíre not at homeÖor out on the road?

In this article Iím going to describe a simple way to create an ASP page that will allow us to view our web servers log files. We will be able to choose which log file to view, the format of the log file, and the number of individual log entries to display.

To put this article to good use, you should be proficient with ASP and have access to a Windows 2000 web server running IIS. The login account for that web server also needs to have administrative privileges to access the log files.
