What does this module do?
It transfers the log of the apache into a relational database, such as
PostgreSQL. As I told MySQL client is possible but it has several
problems with performance, chaching, and stability. The goals
of the project: multiple databases supported, configurable, extensible.
Why not autoconf and automake
Cos I am learning it just now :)
Why should I use your module?
I don`t know. You can use it if you want. For example:
- as a clickthrough database, if you need more information
about your users, their interrests, etc...
- as a component of your advertisement server.
- whatever you want, with a few billion exception...
How can I create reports from the database?
I didn`t implement functionality for this. You can use
a PHP script or the command line database client or the Postgres
JDBC interface + Openoffice to see everything in a nice
How stable is it?
Currently it is alpha, so I woludn`t use it in any outer site,
but should work safely in your intranet.
How does mod_mylog support multiple RDMBS?
Mod_mylog has several (at the moment only one and some test module)
submodules loaded with the LoadLogModule
configuration directive (see our little httpd.conf fragment).
This modules handle request loging, the central module only manages
these submodules (and gives standard interface for them).
Why is that modularity good?
Now mod_mylog is geting a very flexible loging tool, so it is
able to fit the extreme needs (or stupidity) of your customers
and your management ;)
Are there other log tools, what about these modules?
Yes there are lots, try them. There are good modules too, currently
they are more stable :(
