apache is the web server.  It can be configured to log, to various
levels and types, all web accesses.

What you are seeing here is that apache found the file and served it
up to the app (mythweb), so the problem isn't path related.  I think
this also means there aren't any permissions problems.   A path or
permission problem would likely be reflected in the error.log, and
look something like this:

[Tue Jul 21 11:25:33 2009] [error] [client] File does not
exist: /var/www/mythweb/data/video_covers/filename.jpg

I'm thinking that it looks a problem with mythweb or how it is
configured.  Perhaps someone else has some ideas...
