In OptiPerl you can have a live view of the logs created by the web servers. Most servers create two files logging activity of the web site:
- Access Log. This shows the files served by the server. If you have an external server loaded, then it lists the file "Access Log File" in the Options or Project Options dialog.
- Errors Log. This shows the errors encountered by the server. If you have an external server loaded, then it lists the file "Error Log File" in the Options or Project Options dialog.
Right clicking on the window enables you to make it stay on top of the application. If the logs have a line that identify a line, double clicking the line will take the cursor there.
The internal server does not produce logs. Instead it does some very detailed explaining in the "Server talk" tab of the webbrowser.
However if using an external server via loopback, you cannot produce the same output in the "Server talk", even if you enable "spy proxy". If the host is set to http://127.0.0.1/. Change to http://localhost/.
