[kwlug-disc] Logging all output from Apache?

Hi Khalid,

Yes, putting something in front of Apache will solve this with minimum fuss, but unfortunately I'll be stepping on lots of sensitive toes if I do that.  I do have control over CGI program which is behind the web server, and, to some extent, over Apache server.  I was hoping, if Apache has some config options to log its output, then I can avoid writing it in my application code.

Sorry to miss your presentation Yesterday.
