What I need:

  • Early logging (as early as possible)
  • Verbose logging (including all QueryString and POST parameters)

This is on a static php/cgi application. I'm running a web service on this application, and I'd like to have verbose logs of all incoming HTTP requests.

The idea here is that even if something higher level fails (PHP, MySQL), I'll have a copy of the original request and will be able to process that request later, once all of the higher level services are running correctly again.

Do I have any options here using the standard static application?

Aside from standard Apache logging that we do (which you can find in ~/logs/frontend) we don't provide any other logging facilities.

Your best bet would be to use a dedicated logging package/framework. Off the top of my head, I know of:

I haven't used any of these myself, so I can't speak for the quality of them but they should be worth looking at.

Thanks David - I was actually hoping to find something that happens before PHP comes into play. Since that doesn't seem to be possible, I'll take a look at the apps you recommended.
