           Summary: Misleading tips in an error message about internal
                    redirects
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.3-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P4
         Component: Core
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: issues.apache.org@demomusic.nu


When facing a rewrite loop condition problem, the following error message is
printed to the error log:
[Thu Nov 01 01:01:01 2007] [error] [client 00.000.000.00] Request exceeded the
limit of 10 internal redirects due to probable configuration error. Use
'LimitInternalRecursion' to increase the limit if necessary. Use 'LogLevel
debug' to get a backtrace.

It is not evident at all that this is due to a rewrite loop condition, especiall
when enabling LogLevel debug won't produce any "backtrace" as claimed. This is
very misleading. 

A notice level log entry about this is being caused by a rewrite loop condition
(debugged using the RewriteLog directive) would be in place - or some mentioning
of this in the original error message information would be even clearer, for
instance: "Use 'RewriteLog' to debug misconfigured rewrite rules".
