Subject [users@httpd] Cookie tracking question
Date Tue, 17 Mar 2009 00:11:38 GMT
I have inherited an old, fragile codebase that uses CookieTracking. Great!

Except that when they implemented it they used

%{Cookie}i which outputs the cookie as 'cookiename=cookievalue' in the
logfile. It also ignores the first hit since its a header based
cookie, not a module based cookie, and we lose hits.

So, we decided to change to %{Cookie}n so our first hit logs.
Unfortunately, this outputs as 'cookievalue' so our
SuperTerrificTotallyCustomAndFragile log analysis software breaks
since it can't parse the unique user out of the logfile with the
cookie name.

Anyone know of a patch or a tweak that will get %{Cookie}n to output
