|Subject:||Remote access to logs|

I have Apache 2.2.17 (Win32) happilly running away and all is fine but I
would like to access the logs and error docs while I am away from home.
What's the best way to do this?
Is it just a case of editing the httpd.conf to point to a location
within the htdocs folder and then accessing the logs over the internet?
CustomLog "logs/access.log" common
CustomLog "htdocs/difficult-to-guess-folder-name/access.log" common
.... and then accessing them via my website, or is there a security risk
that I am not aware of, other than people being able to view them too,
should they know the url path to the logs?
If there is a security issue, would password protecting the log folder
with htaccess suffice?
Thanks for any help or thoughts,
