I found this sometime ago while trying to configure my apache log files.

Check apache mod_log_config documentation.

Inserting X-Forwarded-For for apache access-logs might help.
# start
LogFormat "%v %{X-Forwarded-For}i %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
CustomLog logs/access_log common
# end

Kind regards
