I actually have two questions:

1) The timestamp in Apache error.log file is client's time or the server's?

2) If I connect to the server via command line and execute the command HEAD / HTTP/1.0, what does the client-date produced among others represent?


Apache error.log shows the server's time when the error occured.

Apache access.log shows the server's time when the response has been completely produced.

If your web application produces a client-date response header, the content is entirely up to that app. Apache is not concerned.
