You mean the access logs generated by Apache, right?

Here's how the various logs are read and written to:

	Apache/Netscape/etc -> writes to access_log

	orcallator.se       <- reads access_log
	                    -> writes orcallator-YYYY-MM-DD logs

	Orca   		    <- reads orcallator-YYYY-MM-DD logs
                            -> writes HTML and PNG/GIF image files

No, Apache doesn't read orcallator.se's logs, orcallator.se reads Apaches
