    Custom Apache log to only show HTML requests

    Today while working on an AJAX issue for CollegeDistrict.com I came across a need to only see HTML requests to Apache while leaving out all of the many requests for images, CSS, and JavaScript files. This would make it quite easy to see when AJAX requests were making it through properly.

    I found a solution which worked well and used these settings in our development httpd.conf:

    SetEnvIf Request_URI "(\.html|\.shtml)$" html
    CustomLog logs/html.log common env=html
