This video is part of a series of articles related to Apache Performance Tuning.
Apache by default logs data directly to log files. While this isn’t a bad thing, it is not your only option. Both Apache 1.x and Apache 2.x bring with them the option of enabling something called “Piped Logging”, though cPanel will only allow you to enable it for version 2.x.
Piped logging is extremely powerful when used correctly, and has far more flexibility than what we are using here. The way it is described here, we will be attempting to negate the memory-hungry Apache processes that creep up when a server is hosting very low traffic websites (less than 1 request per second) with traditional Apache log configurations.
In this video, we will demonstrate how to enable piped logging in Apache.
Next, log into WHM, and follow this sequence to the following location:
1. Service Configuration >> Apache Configuration >> Piped Log Configuration
2. Enable piped Apache logging, save it and let it rebuild the configuration.
