This script presents the latest lines of your LAMP server log files, emulating the tail() function. Layout is nice and responsive. I chose to include inline the CSS and JS to have the ease-of-use of a single, "drop-in", file. If your site is hosted on a Gandi Simplehosting server, it should just work out of the box.

I very much like your script as it's simple and easy to use.
But I think you are missing a "php" after the "<?" in line 363.

Thanks a lot!

Nice work, can you also add some kind of authentication so we can protect log privacy

Thanks for the script, but as it is, it allows reading of any file that the http server has access to (such as /etc/passwd) by changing the URL.

Adding this to the beginning of the tail() function seems to limit it to the logfiles in the specified directory:

function tail($filename, $lines = 50, $buffer = 4096)
{
        // Check if allowed
        global $files;
        $dir = dirname($filename);
        $file = basename($filename);
        if (!isset($files[$dir . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR]) ||
             $files[$dir . DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR][$file]["path"] != $filename) {
                return "Not allowed";
        }

        // Open the file
....
