But the comment for that variable says that it applies to the error log. It shouldn't affect access log, should it?
By the way, I also have:
CustomLog /var/log/httpd-access.log combined
This has always worked in the past. I didn't change anything manually in the httpd.conf file, but I know that the PHP5 installation touched it.
I search on the word "log" and everything looks right. This one has me baffled.
It turns out that when the log rolls over every night, Apache stops logging. If I restart Apache manually, logging starts again until the nightly rollover.
I figure that this might be a permissions problem. Maybe Apache doesn't have permission to write to the newly created log file, which was actually made by the program that does the log rollover.
I'm running FreeBSD.
I don't really know how the log rollover job works, or where it is configured. The dysfunctional log is owned by root/wheel and set to 644.
