Thanks for the comments. By default, BBEdit 6.5 doesn't install the Unix shell command. You should be able to find an installer on the BBEdit 6.5 cd (or ESD) that will allow you to install the shell utilities.

What sort of error message did you get when you tried to tail the access_log?

    I've just gone back and checked my terminal (I worked through the article as I read it) and I was using the auto-complete function to fill out the path & file names so I didn't notice that it had filled out:
    tail /var/log/httpd/access_log

    If I list the directory you can see that an underscore is used...
    [cto:~] cto% l /var/log/httpd/
    total 8
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 0 Nov 16 17:16 access_log
    -rw-r--r-- 1 root wheel 4008 Dec 2 11:11 error_log

    Great Articles by the way.

    thanks for the bbedit tip works now.
    the instructions say
    "Apache's access file is located in /var/log/httpd/access.log. Let's look at the very last lines of that file, easily reached with this command:

    tail /var/log/httpd/access.log"

    when actually I had to use:
    tail /var/log/httpd/access_log
