1 Answer 1

This is configured at Application servers > server name > HTTP error and NCSA access logging.

You also need to enabled the logging in the inbound web channel under: Servers > Application Servers > server > Web Container Transport Chains > HTTP Inbound Channel

Have a look at: http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/wasinfo/v6r1/topic/com.ibm.websphere.nd.doc/info/ae/ae/utrb_httperrlogs.html
