Find <IfModule log_config_module> inside httpd.conf (under Windows) or other conf file (under Linux) and add

I am using apache 2 on ubuntu. How can I enable log_config_module? – bbzer Apr 28 '11 at 18:05
mod_log_config should be compiled in. You don't need to activate it separately. Besides that a2enmod is the utility of choice to activate Apache httpd modules on Debian or Ubuntu systems. – joschi Apr 28 '11 at 19:22
+1 for linking the documentation. – pjmorse Apr 29 '11 at 16:05
