dontlog Apache 2.4

Last Modified: 2016-03-17
Looking all over the net, cannot find a solution that works. What's wrong with the following as it doesn't prevent the logging I am trying to stop.

ErrorLog "logs/error_log"
LogLevel warn

<IfModule log_config_module>
        LogFormat "%v %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\"" combined
        SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "127\.0\.0\.1" dontlog
        SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "::1" dontlog
        SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "1\.2\.3\.4" dontlog
        SetEnvIf Remote_Addr "5\.6\.7\.8" dontlog
        SetEnvIf User-Agent ".*internal dummy connection.*" dontlog
        CustomLog /var/log/httpd/access_log combined env=!dontlog
        CustomLog /var/log/httpd/access_log combined
        ErrorLog  /var/log/httpd/error_log
    <IfModule logio_module>
        LogFormat "%v %h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" %I %O" combinedio
        CustomLog "logs/access_log" combined
