See the "Custom Log Formats" section of the mod_log_config documentation:

You can use the LogFormat and CustomLog directives to log HTTP headers
(e.g., "Cookie"); recent versions of Apache have examples of doing
this for "Referer" and "User-agent" in the sample configuration files.

1. Can you log specific cookies with Apache %{cookie}i log format?


Just wanted to know if it is possible to limit the returned \"%{cookie}i \"
string in our custom logfile to only show the "Apache=" cookie rather than
all the cookies set for the current servers domain. We are comparing the
\"%{set-cookie}o\" server response to the browser set-cookie request to
identify browsers who have turned off cookies. Logging other cookies not set
directly by Apache seems a waste of disk space. Is there an alternative
other than fiddling with the mod_log_config code?

Any clues much appreciated.
