Request for web log files (mainly 500 error messages)

At the moment I'm working on a few projects one of which is looking at SQL injections.  What I do not have however is enough samples of web logs especially those with 500 errors in them.  If you are able to share you 500 error records, please send them in. Feel free to obfuscate the server IP, but if you could leave the first three octets preferably, but first two are fine as well that would be great. 

Please just send them to markh.isc at rather than upload them to the contact form as I don't want to flood that address. The results will be published here in a couple of months (anonymised) and If I find anything of interest in your log files, you'll be the first to know. So think of this as a free review of your web logs :-)

Thanks in advance.

Mark, do you want entire logs, or just logs grepped for 500 errors?

Either way is fine, whatever you can share for however long (or even regularly for the next month or so would be great.
