Installing SSL certificates on Ubuntu Server 12.04

Hi everyone,
I am working on a Nginx + Apache installation for learning purposes, and just got to the point of installing a self-signed certificate for securing some pages that will be used to send "sensitive" information such as login credentials. So far so good.
What a I want to know is how can I tell the difference between using certificates or not at the log level. In other words, I know that using https and a certificate is more secure but I would like to "see it".
To further clarify my question, what should I look out for both in the Nginx or Apache logs to ensure that using a certificate is indeed protecting the sensitive information as it is being sent.
I hope I made myself clear.
Any hints, ideas, will be more than welcome! Thanks in advance.
