Common Gateway Interface

In computing, Common Gateway Interface (CGI) offers a standard protocol for web servers to execute programs that execute like console applications (also called command-line interface programs) running on a server that generates web pages dynamically.

Extended Log Format

Extended Log Format (ELF) is a standardised text file format, like Common Log Format (CLF), that is used by web servers when generating log files, but ELF files provide more information and flexibility.
