Well, can anyone suggest a port that will parse the error.log and  
output it to a web page that's easy to read?

Also, in httpd.conf what level of detail should I set in the error.log  
to get the most information.  It's currently set to 'warn', which I  
understand to be 'warn' and everything more critical than that.  I  
don't care about the size of the log, or the amount of garbage per line.
