Have you updated your http.conf file to support the new log directives?


Multiple Access Logs

Multiple access logs can be created simply by specifying multiple CustomLog 
directives in the configuration file. For example, the following directives 
will create three access logs. The first contains the basic CLF 
information, while the second and third contain referer and browser 
information. The last two CustomLog lines show how to mimic the effects of 
the ReferLog and AgentLog directives.

LogFormat "%h %l %u %t \"%r\" %>s %b" common
CustomLog logs/access_log common
CustomLog logs/referer_log "%{Referer}i -> %U"
CustomLog logs/agent_log "%{User-agent}i"

This example also shows that it is not necessary to define a nickname with 
the LogFormat directive. Instead, the log format can be specified directly 
in the CustomLog directive.
