    Command Line Monitoring

    Hi, this just popped into my head- is it possible to monitor web traffic (in any way) to your website through the command line. Or is this just wishful thinking?

    Thanks,

    If you go to the log files ("/home/apache/logs/" I think?) and do a "tail -f xxxxxx" on the access log file, you should be able to see it in real time.
