My httpd error and access logs are not updating. They have a few entries each but when I try to visit my site or when I encounter a cgi 500 error, nothing is recorded. How can I fix this?

Are you logs enabled ? Check that the ErrorLog and CustomLog directives in your apache configuration files are valid and not commented out with a # in front of them.

They are valid. I can see some entries in the log. It's just that new ones aren't added – Matthew Hui Aug 25 '11 at 16:39
