Need access to Raw Log files

I am trying to set up a program that needs to access the raw log files of multiple web sites. When hosted on UNIX, where are the log files usually stored? Is there a set place? I'm sure this depends on the host as well, but I wasn't sure if there was some type of standard.

Thanks.

In Debian it is /var/log/apache/access.log

It may change depending of the distro, I don't really know. Even if there were an standard nothing can stop an admin of setting a different directory anyway.

p.s.: assuming the server is apache, sorry.

Unless you have a server all to yourself, your log files are unlikely to be /var/log. On shared servers, my experience is that different hosting companies put them in different locations.

Look in the apache config file (usually httpd.conf).
