Web log files are the greatest source of knowledge now days, which keeps all the information about users interaction to web. This interaction provides us the usage patterns of the user by using web usage mining. These files contain all the information about visitors of the web which is used as input for analysis. These files are converted to required formats after completing the preprocessing so Web Usage Mining (WUM) techniques can apply on these logs. Web usage mining gives us the details of user patterns. In this study we are going discover different behaviors patterns from the web proxy server log file of an educational organization with web usage mining technique. Results are based on the interest of users towards educational websites.
