  2. Click the Web or FTP Site tab, and then select the Enable logging check box (if it is not already selected).

  3. In the Active log format box, click W3C Extended Log File Format.

  4. Click Properties.

  5. Click the Advanced tab, select the properties that you want to log, and then click OK.
