How to find access.log
Hello 2 questions;
1 - I look for file called access.log in root directory; root I believe contains all folders on the server. Howcome the command returns nothing and doesn't find access.log
2 - What is the difference between these 2:

1. Either it doesn't exist or you don't have permissions to get to it (in which case you should have seen warnings). Or maybe something else, I don't know it's almost 2am.
2. Nothing. The quotes are for... well, consider these two:
find / -name site access.log
find / -name "site access.log"

It's typical for the access/error logs from apache to include the server-name in the file name somehow. The easiest way to find out what their name is and where they are at is to just check the apache config file for the corresponding ErrorLog and CustomLog directives.

Try find / -iname "*access.log*"

Dare I suggest reading the documentation/manual for the web server you are running and seeing where it says it will be putting the file and if it is created automatically.
