Apache, httpd.conf, trying to log cookies

    I'm trying to get cookies in the Apache log files, but it isn't working.

    /etc/httpd/conf/httpd.conf contains:
    LoadModule usertrack_module modules/mod_usertrack.so
    LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" \"%{Cookie}i\"" combined
    CustomLog logs/access_log combined

    .htaccess contains:
    CookieTracking On
    CookieExpires "5 years"
    CookieName "mycookie"

    and I've restarted Apache via:
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd stop
    /etc/rc.d/init.d/httpd start

    but nada in access_log. I've tried modifying vhost.conf too.

    Am I missing a typo, or what?

    Finally figured this out. The cookies were getting written to the client, and were getting passed. The issue had to do with the Apache configuration. Coding the following specific fpointer to the log file in vhost.conf fixed it:

    LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b \"%{Referer}i\" \"%{User-Agent}i\" \"%{Cookie}i\"" combined
    CustomLog /home/httpd/vhosts/mydomain.com/statistics/logs/access_log combined

    Dear SWsoft: Please please please document the relationship between httpd.conf, httpd.include, and vhost.conf, and how to manage the location and contents of the log files. This took hours upon hours of experimentation and research.
