Is it possible to make an entry in a logfile whenever Apache does a certain redirect? I'd like to be able to keep track of which users used the URL that is being redirected from.

RewriteLog Directive

Description: Sets the name of the file used for logging rewrite engine processing

Syntax: RewriteLog file-path

Context: server config, virtual host

Status: Extension

Module: mod_rewrite

The RewriteLog directive sets the name of the file to which the server logs any rewriting actions it performs. If the name does not begin with a slash ('/') then it is assumed to be relative to the Server Root. The directive should occur only once per server config.
