Hello,

I have a server using "confixx" as an web-interface for managing user accounts.
It generally created logfiles for every domain in the users directory "/home/www/webX/log/access_log" but since I did an backup it's not creating them any more.
I must say that the config files of apache and confixx-hosts are the same as the previous.
The directory log has enough user-rights and for "web1" the logfiles are working very well, not for the other users.

My question is, where is this problem to solve and how to tell apache or confixx to do this logfiles?
I need them not only for webalizer, the web-traffic of every user is being calculated by using this logfiles.

Thanx

I assume you are using virtualhosts here given the "domain" comment? If so you need to make sure that in httpd.conf (or an included file thereof) there are lines defining the error and access log locations within each <VirtualHost> section.

For example, my VirtualHost sections contain something along the lines of:

    ErrorLog logs/domain.name-error_log
    CustomLog logs/domain.name-access_log combined

(for Apache 2 on RedHat 8)

A backup shouldn't change anything on the server - it should just make a copy of all you've told it to...

If you are after per-directory logging, then it *may* be possible using apache, but I've never done it. Alternatively, you could get the log analysis tool to work from one file, and parse the results that way. Certainly analog can do this (and pretty much anything else in fact).

Never used confixx either so can't comment on that one, but am assuming all it does it creates the VirtualHost sections for you within the Apache configuration?
