Apache, httpd.conf, transferLog: Limiting certain files from being logged

Apache, httpd.conf, transferLog: Limiting certain files from being logged

Post by remove=th » Tue, 05 May 1998 04:00:00


I installed a html based chat on one of the sites on my web server, and since
the file reloads every few seconds, it creates a really big log file. (100Mb
in 3 weeks) Since I use the log for statistic purpose and I want to limit its
size, I would like to know if it is possible to add in the

<VIRTUALHOST www.website.com>

a line where I can tell the server to do not log the file that is reloading
all the time...

Please send me a copy of your answers in my email. I won't miss your message
that way :)

1. Limiting TransferLog entries on NCSA HTTPd 1.5

I have come up dry in my attempts to find information about limiting those
paths which NCSA HTTPd 1.5 will log to the TransferLog (access_log).

Does anyone know if this is possible?  If so, how?

Thanks in advance!
