Question

LiteSpeed Wordpress droplet Loggin

I have a litespeed wordpress droplet configured. I was reviewing the logs and noticed my activity was not showing. It seems not all activity is logged, I went on another computer and browsed the site and nothing is logged as I monitored via tail -f /usr/local/lsws/logs/access.log

I want to closely monitor and export these logs to a SIEM but I am not getting all the data I expect.

My httpd_config.conf is set to:

accessLog logs/access.log {
        rollingSize          40M
        keepDays             120
        compressArchive      1
        logReferer           1
        logUserAgent         1
}

Example of my log file showing the todays recent events but not mine:

172.94.00.000 - - [15/Sep/2021:14:19:00 +0000] "GET /nice%20ports%2C/Tri%6Eity.txt%2ebak HTTP/1.0" 404 1236 "-" "-"
172.94.00.000 - - [15/Sep/2021:14:19:00 +0000] "GET / HTTP/1.0" 404 1236 "-" "-"
172.94.00.000 - - [15/Sep/2021:14:19:01 +0000] "OPTIONS / HTTP/1.0" 404 1236 "-" "-"
172.94.00.000 - - [15/Sep/2021:14:19:02 +0000] "GET /nice%20ports%2C/Tri%6Eity.txt%2ebak HTTP/1.0" 404 1236 "-" "-"
172.94.00.000 - - [15/Sep/2021:14:20:47 +0000] "POST /IPHTTPS HTTP/1.1" 404 1236 "-" "-"

What am I missing? Can I get more verbose logs?

Hi @tjenkins,

I see you’ve fixed the issue you’ve had. Can I ask you to provide the quick steps you did and where exactly you changed the configuration? I’m asking for the possibility of another person finding the question.

Solved, had to expose the lightspeed portal and configure logging for the virtual host.
