Subject [users@httpd] CustomLog pipe help
Date Sun, 09 Apr 2006 11:51:34 GMT
Hi all.  
I have an issue which, I am sure someone out there has encountered in
the past.  
I have a website, whose authors have written some of the URLs in a
format which contains characters which are not well liked by my log
analysis tools (Deepmetrix Livestats).
I would like to simply strip off the bad characters using a CustomLog
directive by piping to sed and then piping to rotatelogs, but cannot
seem to make it work.
CustomLog "|/bin/sed 's/;variable/?variable' | /usr/sbin/rotatelogs
/etc/httpd/logs/mysite.%Y-%m-%d-%H_%M_%S 5M" combined
The result is the entire line not getting logged.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
