Spoke too soon, excluding "wpad.dat" log entries did/does not work!

but the conf file does not abort apache2.

ps: where are apache log files defined besides:

Put the setenvif statement in a global config, e.g. httpd.conf. Then
add the env=!dontlog to every customlog statement where you don't
want wpad.dat.

added senenvif statement to new file /etc/apache2/httpd.conf.local and
include statement in etc/sysconfig/apache2 for httpd.conf.local.

put env=!dontlog into /etc/apache2/conf.d/awstats.conf and

/etc/apache2/sysconfig.d/global.conf is generated when apache2 starts
or restarts.

In the 'setenvif', maybe remove the backslash or add a 2nd one.
Without the backslash, the regex becomes a little 'wider', but that
can be fine-tuned later.

doesn't appear necessary (atm).

this appears to stop wpad.dat entries into access_og which is not what
I have configured. Nowhere do I have access_log configured but it is
still being generated and awstats.log is full of wpad.dat entries :^(

Where would access_log be defined besides
/etc/apache2/conf.d/awstats.conf /and etc/sysconfig/apache2?

Quite often in /etc/apache2/vhosts.d/*.conf if you have virtual hosts.
Otherwise grep for it.
