How do I keep certain pages from being logged when accessed?  I have a couple of pages that get accessed a lot and I don't need to fill the log file with that information.

I don't believe that there is a way for that to occur;  you could have a script that re-wrote the log file after the log rotated out without the information, but I'm not aware of a way to selectively log accesses.

hi kareed,

Take a look at Apache docs on mod_log_config : http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_log_config.html

Specifically CustomLog directive  : http://httpd.apache.org/docs-2.0/mod/mod_log_config.html#customlog

This should give you a basic idea on how "selective logging" could be implemented.

Some other links that I found very interesting.
