Hi,
If you need to edit a file in a web browser you could use a wiki. I'm not sure what you mean by editing a log file, this generally isn't a good idea. Can you be a but more specific about what you are trying to do.

Regards,
Jimvin

Do the support group need to be able to write to the file or just read it? If they only need read access to the file then you could simply put a web server on the radius server. You ought to put some security around the web server if the information is sensitive.

One suggestion is to create a symbolic link from somewhere in your web server document root to the log directory:

ln -s /var/log/radius/logs /var/www/htdocs/logfiles

Then going to http://yourserver/logfiles should show you the contents of the log directory. This is assuming your have directory indexing and FollowSymlinks enabled.

Regards,
Jimvin
