Apache errors - vlogger keeps failing
 
I followed the perfect server setup for Ubuntu 12.04 and ISPConfig 3.
I keep getting this error, every 5-30 minutes.
libtimedate-perl is already installed. The error doesn't say that something is missing.

Code:

piped log program ' /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger -s access.log -t "%Y%m%d-access.log" -d "/etc/vlogger-dbi.conf" /var/log/ispconfig/httpd' failed unexpectedly

What happens when you run
Code:

/usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger -s access.log -t "%Y%m%d-access.log" -d "/etc/vlogger-dbi.conf" /var/log/ispconfig/httpd
manually?

Nothing happens, the cursor keeps blinking as if it expects user input.
I let it run for 25 minutes.

But, if I hit Enter, I get back to the root console and it throws this error:
Code:

Use of uninitialized value $vhost in lc at /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger line 385, <STDIN> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value $reqsize in pattern match (m//) at /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger line 463, <STDIN> line 1.
Use of uninitialized value $reqsize in numeric gt (>) at /usr/local/ispconfig/server/scripts/vlogger line 463, <STDIN> line 1.

vlogger line 385:
Code:

$vhost = lc($vhost) || "default";
vlogger line 463:
Code:

if ( $reqsize =~ m/^\d*$/ && $reqsize > 0 ) {

Looks like you use the wrong log format. Can you post your /etc/apache2/apache2.conf and the output of
Code:

ls -la /etc/apache2/sites-available/
?

The error occurs each time a site is visited.
If I click on 1-2 pages or if I reload the page, it happens again.

/etc/apache2/apache2.conf

Code:

#
# Based upon the NCSA server configuration files originally by Rob McCool.
#
# This is the main Apache server configuration file.  It contains the
# configuration directives that give the server its instructions.
# See http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/ for detailed information about
# the directives.
#
# Do NOT simply read the instructions in here without understanding
# what they do.  They're here only as hints or reminders.  If you are unsure
# consult the online docs. You have been warned. 
#
# The configuration directives are grouped into three basic sections:
#  1. Directives that control the operation of the Apache server process as a
#    whole (the 'global environment').
#  2. Directives that define the parameters of the 'main' or 'default' server,
#    which responds to requests that aren't handled by a virtual host.
#    These directives also provide default values for the settings
#    of all virtual hosts.
#  3. Settings for virtual hosts, which allow Web requests to be sent to
#    different IP addresses or hostnames and have them handled by the
#    same Apache server process.
#
# Configuration and logfile names: If the filenames you specify for many
# of the server's control files begin with "/" (or "drive:/" for Win32), the
# server will use that explicit path.  If the filenames do *not* begin
# with "/", the value of ServerRoot is prepended -- so "foo.log"
# with ServerRoot set to "/etc/apache2" will be interpreted by the
# server as "/etc/apache2/foo.log".
#

### Section 1: Global Environment
#
# The directives in this section affect the overall operation of Apache,
# such as the number of concurrent requests it can handle or where it
# can find its configuration files.
#

#
# ServerRoot: The top of the directory tree under which the server's
# configuration, error, and log files are kept.
#
# NOTE!  If you intend to place this on an NFS (or otherwise network)
# mounted filesystem then please read the LockFile documentation (available
# at <URL:http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/mod/mpm_common.html#lockfile>);
# you will save yourself a lot of trouble.
#
# Do NOT add a slash at the end of the directory path.
#
#ServerRoot "/etc/apache2"

# The accept serialization lock file MUST BE STORED ON A LOCAL DISK.

Looks ok. Please check if each line in the access logs in /var/log/ispconfig/httpd begins with the name of the vhost.
