I installed Apache Tomcat on my Ubuntu server. The next step is, I want to interpret the access logs. However I didn't really understand the logs. Like POST / GETS, what do they mean? I really want to know how I can see the failed access attempts in the logs on my Apache Tomcat server.

A guide for beginners would be very helpful.

GET and POST are different types of HTTP requests, you can find explanation on this post.

You will find more information about failed access attempts with error code like 403 (Forbidden), 404 (not found) by example, on Wikipedia.

Some officiel documentation on Apache can help you for this.
