Subject [users@httpd] Timestamps of access log entries
Date Wed, 07 Apr 2010 12:25:07 GMT
Hi there,


I am having troubles with the switch over between GMT and BST with
respect to the entries going in the log files, I am using apache 2.0.55


The timezones on our servers are set to GB and during British Wintertime
the log file entries are stamped correctly, however when moving to BST I
have to add the following to the apache startup script to get the
timestamps in BST format.



export TZ


And obviously remember to take this out when returning back to GMT in


For the actual logfile configuration I use the following:


Logformat "%{%Y-%m-%d %H:%M:%S}t %{X-Forwarded-For}i %{host}i %r %s %b
%D %q %{User-Agent}i %{IR_PORTAL_COOKIE}C %{Referer}i" ORU_extended

CustomLog "|/opt/app/apache/bin/rotatelogs
/opt/app/apache/logs/site_access_log.%Y-%m-%d 86400" ORU_extended


Is there any other way of ensuring the correct localtime gets put into
the logfile entries?? I have tried using %X in place of %H:%M:%S but
this has no effect.
