wwwerrs - httpd log rotation for wwwstat
[error log name]
This program reads the httpd error_log logfile (or whatever file is
given as the single argument) looking for failed requests (bad URLs)
which include a valid Referer (and thus can be tracked to the origin
of the reference). It assumes that the error_log has been enhanced
to include the referer information (as in NCSA 1.4 and later).
The output is an HTML file that makes it easy to check references.
The script should be edited to discard normal error messages, where
normal is dependent on your particular server.
