Is the response "Http 200 xxx" can be considered as successful login when it shows in the access.log?

The log example is: Get abc\mysite.com http 1.1" 200 1748"

Thank you in advance.

Not necessarily, it depends on the type of authentication.

If Apache is doing it (Basic, Digest, dbd... the authn(z) modules) then a failure would be a 401 error.

If however abc\mysite.com is doing the authentication, then no. A 200 just means it successfully served the request, which in this case Apache would just 200 when successfully serving abc\mysite.com's error page.

A good example is right here. The forum software does the authentication and if you get your username, password or both wrong, Apache will still log a 200 when it successfully serves the forum software's page saying "Doh, you really mucked up on that try Homer!"
