Yes, the two files have the same meaning.  The orcallator.se reads the
access_log files generated by Apache or any other web server.  Update
start_orcallator to use a log file generated by Apache.

     Dear Blair Zajac

     Thank you for your advice.
     Now, I can understand what you're mean and the same time,
     I have a quetion.

     Are these "/data/logs/access_log"and the access_log file that belongs in 
     Apache the quite same thing? And the same role?
     I thought these files are different things and have different roles.

     If you say so(I mean these are the same thing in this time), 
     I'll reset the log file in start_orcallator, it means
      change "/data/logs/access_log" to a file that has been used 
     in apache since I  have installed apache.

     Does it make sense what I wrote?

     I'm sorry that my expression may be wrong, because English isn't
     my first language.
     I wish you can understand what I want to say.

       Make sure you have your web server save access logs of all requests and
       make sure WEB_LOG points to this file.

       Since the file size is always 0, it sounds like either you're not saving
       access logs or have the wrong location.
