We run a simple server using a Linux EC2 instance, which includes a Java applet with a .JAR and associated assets .ZIP file. We're seeing some issues on the client side which suggest the applet is trying to access files from the ZIP directly on the server, e.g http://our-site.com/resources/graphics/sprite.png instead of assets.zip/resources/graphics/sprite.png. But we are not sure if these requests are happening or are just being logged and internally get mapped to the ZIP.
So I need a way on the server to log all file requests received. It seems like a normal kind of thing to do but I'm a developer not a sysadmin so I don't have a clue if this is something I can just turn on, or need to do myself, and what I should be searching for online.
