    But how???

    The log file is located in /var/log/httpd . I need to share this out so a Windows machine on our network can access the log, but this appears to be some kind of hidden system folder that I can't see with the Finder. Is there a way for me to do this?

    Apple tech support discussion forums have been no help. I know I can count on someone here knowing...:D

    In Terminal:
    ln -s /var/log/httpd/ /some/shared/directory/someNameYouDecide

    This will create a symbolic link from /some/shared/directory/someNameYouDecide to /var/log/httpd. I don't know how this will work within a shared folder. I think it should work as long as the log in user has read permissions on /var/log/httpd/, but no guarantees.
