    why httpd logs are generating under /var/log/messages

    I am not sure why I am getting all httpd logs under /var/log/messages. I have make sure the following changes under /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf and restarted "service httpd restart"

    CustomLog "|/usr/sbin/rotatelogs /var/log/httpd/access_log.%Y-%m-%d 86400" combined
    CustomLog |/usr/local/bin/apache_syslog combined

    Please help!

    Are you running any virtual hosts? They may (it's probably quite common) to specify different log files for each virtual host. This would override any global setting you put in for all websites.

    Thanks, Roxoff.

    I check the virtual host configuration as well.

    if I turn off the syslog server then I don't get any message. I do have another system which has exact configuration and it doesn't log the message under /var/log/messages.
