Help Tracking Unique Visitors

Logging Cookies w/ .htaccess

I'am wondering if someone could help me out with this.

I am trying to do a better job tracking unique visitors and thought Apache's (v.1.3.27) CookieTracking was the answer. I can set the client cookie using the following in my .htaccess file.

CookieExpires "7 days"
CookieName "MyIPAddress"
CookieTracking on

However, the cookie does not show up in my web logs. I have looked at the CustomLog directive, but it does not works in .htaccess. Is there another way?

Thanks for the help in advance!

Interesting, I didn't know this module existed.

>Is there another way?
At the risk of stating the obvious..it should at least work in httpd.conf

Could it be you already have a log directive in httpd.conf and your system configuration does not allow overrides in the directory you're working in?

probably not much help to you..sorry
It will at least bump this post to the top again eh ;)
