I dont think so. These errors, that I want to log, are initiated by
the php function syslog() (look at the example above).
These messages are supposed to go to the syslogd daemon, not to httpd's
In the example above, if I change the priority from "LOG_INFO" to
the error messages go to /var/log/messages.
I just need it to start going to its own file.
The ultimate goal, is that I want to have a cluster of webservers,
logging to a central server.
