Subject Re: [users@httpd] Seperate logs with mod_vhost_alias
Date Fri, 25 Jun 2004 18:01:01 GMT
[Off Topic]
Hi, I've been using modlogan and you can specify a splitby variable or 
regex that captures a peice of the log file and uses it to process the 
log. so i end up having seperate stats for the virtual hosts, i think 
that's what you're looking for.  i'm not very familiar with awstats or 
the other softwares but i'd think you could probably post to those lists 
to see how people do it.
