The log_config module provides for flexible logging of client requests, and provides for the configuration of the information in each log.


Logging is critical for monitoring usage and potential abuse of your web server. This module is required to configure web server logging using the log_format directive.


Perform either one of the following:

For source builds with static modules, run the Apache ./configure script without including the --disable-log-config script options.

$ ./configure

For dynamically loaded modules, add or modify the LoadModule directive so that it is present in the apache configuration as below and not commented out:

LoadModule log_config_module modules/mod_log_config.so

Default Value:

The log_config module is loaded by default.
