Was wondering if there was a way to see which virtual host entry is used for routing a request? Is there some way to add the name of the virtual host file being used for the request to the access.log file?


The LogFormat directive can take a %v placeholder which does exactly what you want.

The LogFormat options are documented here: http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/logs.html#virtualhost


I find the Host: header to be very useful as well, add this to your LogFormat directive:

  • They return different values, so depending on your scenario you may want both. %v returns the Servername of the vhost the request landed on.
