I have a virtual dedicated server with GoDaddy. One of my scripts serves a download from a directory that is above the public_html directory for security reasons. Is it possible to set up the apache/http directives such that a log is created of accesses to this directory? Or perhaps this is just a contradiction in terms?

... don't you want to log the access to the script? presumably there is no other way of accessing the download if it is above the root.

Thanks topr8. Indeed, I am tracking the attempt to download. I am hoping to add a check on whether the download was a success.

... ok, i figured you'd be doing the obvious already!

sorry i don't know what your next step should be.

if it is above the root then do you use a script to serve it?

if so the script could create a log of it's own and write what you want.

If not a script then how do you serve it?
