Hi All,

How do i log the HTTP Header info that the Apache HTTP Server recevies from the client? I am currently using Apache HTTP 2.0.59 version.

Thanks

You are probably using the predefined common or combined log file format at the moment. You could do a custom format by selecting the fields you are interested in from http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/mod/mod_log_config.html#formats

Many of the loggable headers are predefined (%...h is Remote host, %...H is request protocol, etc.) but you can get other headers out with %...{Foobar}i (where {Foobar} is your header name) log format entries.

Follow the instructions for mod'ing your httpd.conf here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.0/logs.html
