Yes, but is it actually being used? If you put in an obvious syntax
error and then restart the server, does it give you an error message?

This leads me to be believe you are a little lost in your config
files. If there is no CustomLog (or TransferLog) directive, then
apache will not write an access_log file.

Going back to your first message, I'm also a little concerned that you
may be mixing up the error_log and access_log. Only the latter is
controlled by CustomLog.
