The log_forensic Apache module provides forensic logs of client requests.


Use the log_forensic Apache module to log client requests to a server.  This module makes log entries both before and after the system processes the request. Each request receives a unique identifier in the log to make it easier to track. The log_forensic Apache module uses the unique identifier that the mod_unique_id Apache module generates, if that module is installed and available.


For security purposes, store log files in a directory that is writable only by the root user.


This module has no requirements.


This module has no known compatibility issues.
