mod_proxy debug logging


I've got a Tomcat server that's being accessed by users via an different Apache server (2.2). Originally I used mod_jk to make the Tomcat server (running on 8080) available on port 80, but I always found mod_jk rather unstable.
So I just configured Apache to use mod_proxy (reverse proxy) instead and so far it's behaving a lot better.

However, one annoying thing I noticed is that Apapche's error log is getting all debug logs from mod_proxy and mod_proxy_http.
I checked the config, but the loglevel is set to warn.

Is there a way to either disable debug logging for mod_proxy? or alternatively set mod_proxy to log to it's own log file?

Unfortunately, there is no way to redirect the proxy logging....I have tried many ways.

To disable it or limit it, make the following changes to the httpd.conf and set the LogLevel to what you want to capture.

<IfModule mod_proxy.c>
        LogLevel Debug
