[Bug 64584] New: Bring back RewriteLog

Bugzilla from bugzilla@apache.org

            Bug ID: 64584
           Summary: Bring back RewriteLog
           Product: Apache httpd-2
           Version: 2.4-HEAD
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_rewrite
          Assignee: [hidden email]
          Reporter: [hidden email]
  Target Milestone: ---

The elimination of the RewriteLog file was a poor design choice. Admins should
have the choice to direct such logs to a separate file. Rewrite log out is
noisy and normally not considered an "error", whereas apache error logs are
more useful for finding problems with scripts and internal problems. The
combined file puts greater requirements on monitoring systems, for instance, in
which simply observing the file length would be more useful. The rewrite log is
not only useful for debugging, but also light auditing of dynamic rules.

Finally, mod_Security attempts to buffer output to the error file, and spits
out the rewrite logs within its audit output. While mod_security can be
configured to suppress lines from error_log, there is no way to selectively
suppress them, reducing the value of this option.

Please reintroduce RewriteLog as an option which if set, sends the trace
information to the specified file instead of via the apache logger.
